However, the new flexibility came with an overall 10% reduction of so-called “C-Cap” state funding. While he supports the block grants, Kay admitted, “The cuts did hurt, but we complied and rung out everything we could. C-Cap funding restoration will help.”

The commissioners also announced that Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Peifer has notified Wayne that its application for grant funding for a baseline water quality study has been approved. Peifer did not include the amount that the grant would fund.

The commissioners expressed surprise at the interest in their bid request for the installation of a package sewage grinder at the county correctional facility. Ten bids, ranging from $82,000 to $168,000, were received and referred to staff for engineering review and recommendations.
