Polls relocation gets opposition

The Wayne County Commissioners joined supervisors and dispatch staff of the county’s 911 center as center staff was honored. Each member of the dispatch staff received the commissioners’ certificate stating, “your calm and reassuring voice on the other end of the phone and your competency in connecting those in crisis with needed emergency services has provided invaluable services to our families within Wayne County. On behalf of so many residents, we thank you.”

In other business, the commissioners approved: (1) a letter of support and $6,500 in county share funding for a $50,000 USDA Rural Business Development Grants being sought by the Wayne Economic Development Authority for Wayne Business Technology Center improvements to the county’s Park Street Center at the former Stourbridge School; and (2) a Wayne County District Attorney’s grant application to the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) for an “intermediate punishment” program for those convicted of non-violent drug and substance abuse crimes.
