The commissioners, upon questioning at the Apr. 27 meeting, said a civil rights violation lawsuit filed against the county by a local attorney had been settled in 2010.
Commissioner Michael Giangrieco said the county’s insurance had paid the settlement but no additional details were given at the meeting.
Attorney Raymond Davis filed the suit after the commissioners sought to bar the lawyer from the county courthouse in July 2008.
The commissioners accepted a proposal by Wild Well Control, Houston, Texas, for the development of an addendum addressing Marcellus Shale emergencies to the county emergency operations plan.
Cost of the project is $5,000 which will be paid through the HazMat Fund. PEMA will reimburse $4,000 to that fund through the Hazardous Materials Emergency Planning Grant after the project is completed.
A proposal was accepted from A New Era Security Inc., Waymart, for the installation of one camera at the courthouse at a cost of $1200 along with a $400 annual maintenance plan for the closed circuit television system.
A purchase agreement was also signed between Children and Youth and the Children’s Home of Easton in effect until June 30.
