County board to meet Monday

JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton County Board of Supervisors will consider action to get more entities to comply with the county’s Occupancy Tax at the board’s virtual meeting at 1 p.m. Monday.

In a proposal from the Finance Committee, supervisors will consider authorizing a contract with Granicus for a data collection software program.

Officials say the program promotes Occupancy Tax compliance in the county Treasurer’s Office.

Another Finance Committee resolution to come before the board Monday is one authorizing a contract amendment with Tyler Technologies for site licensing as a component of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office’s CAD/RMS System contract through the county Information Technology Department.

Supervisors on Monday are scheduled to review numerous “preferred” items on the agenda, which would be voted on by the board in a block. They include ones to: authorize acceptance of AHI North Country DSRIP Program funds for performance payments through the county Public Health Department; signing of an annual update to the Fulton County Child and Family Services Plan for 2018-2023; authorizing a paid leave of absence for probation officer Ronald Briggs to accommodate his service in a Civil Service Employees Association regional officer position; and an acceptance of a donation from SLA Transport Universal Warehousing and Pearl Leather Corp.

From the public safety sector, the board will mull approval of a resolution to extend a Memorandum of Agreement with the Fulton County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association for 10-hour days for certain employees.

The Public Works Committee sent the board a proposed resolution authorizing the solid waste director to sell back 40 hours of vacation accrual.

There are no public speakers or hearings scheduled for the board’s meeting, to be held via Zoom.

Other than resolutions, the board is slated to: review communications, receive a 2020 annual report from the county Board of Election, hear updates from standing committees and reports from special committees, hear a chairman’s report, consider any proclamations, and go over old and new business.
