Delaware County is hoping to help the county’s public health department with some of the costs it has endured during the coronavirus pandemic. The Delaware County Board of Supervisors held a work session with Delaware County Public Health Director Charity Loecke on Monday morning. With unexpected expenses in the last few months due to the pandemic, the County says they’ll work with Public Health on some of those costs. The numbers still need to be reviewed before an official decision is made.
And the County Board of Supervisors received an update on the jail project at their meeting on Monday. Supervisor Jeff Madlom tells KMCH the project is progressing well and on schedule, with the roof nearly complete. He says the County is continuing to look at small ways to cut costs to reach the estimated five-point-nine million dollar price tag they had promised voters last year. Bids came in 800-thousand dollars higher than expected last November.
