Allegany County officials to review bids for Jennings Run project

CUMBERLAND — Allegany County commissioners at Thursday’s public meeting will review bids for the second phase of the Jennings Run Sanitary Sewer District and hear the report of the county’s salary study commission.

Bids for the sewer project could impact the ultimate rate increases likely for customers of the sewer system. County officials have said a rate increase for the customers is likely because of the cost of the work.

The work will include “labor, equipment and materials necessary to replace or rehabilitate sanitary sewer mains, manholes and laterals at the locations indicated on the plans,” bid documents indicate.

County officials will also hear the report of the salary commission by E. William DuVall II, chairman of the commission. The commission was charged with recommending salary structure for county officials to be elected in 2014.

The members of the commission are DuVall, Democratic Central Committee of Allegany County; Wayne Foote, Republican Central Committee of Allegany County; Stuart Czapski, Allegany County Chamber of Commerce; Clarence Broadwater, Allegany-Garrett Counties Fire & Rescue Association; T.R. Robinette, Farm Bureau of Allegany County; James Bestpitch, Western Maryland Central Labor Council; and Betsey Hurwitz-Schwab, at-large member.

In other action, county officials are expected to sign a resolution supporting an application for funds by the Allegany County Human Resources Development Commission.

The funds would be used to rehabilitate abandoned and blighted property in South Cumberland.

Commissioners are also expected to make appointments to the Housing Authority of Allegany County and the Allegany County Mental Health Advisory Board.
