The Fulton Board of County Commissioners extended the deadline for surveys, reports and schedules for Ditch 2111-Lambert to June 8, 2017
The board received a recommendation that work on Ditch 2127, branches 3e and 3e3, is feasible. The project is estimated to cost more than $55,000, but will have far greater benefit over the 20-year life of the upgrades for property owners in preserving and enhancing their values.
A petition for work at Branch 4 of Fewless Creek in Swancreek Township was studied as well. The project cost is $54,180 for Branch 4 and $32,510 for Branch 4d.
The last work by the county on the branch goes back to the late 1940s. The land owners have been doing maintenance since then.
The board extended the contract with Allied Waste Services by $30,000.
Approved a contract with AccuMed to protect health information for EMS.
