RIDGWAY — The Elk County Commissioners met Tuesday morning for their bi-monthly meeting to conduct regular business.
Among those items were:
Delinquent tax payments
Kris Roselli and Tyler Daniels, of the assessment office, were in attendance of the meeting, explaining that recently the Tax Claim Bureau and Tax Assessment Office has installed a system that will allow people with delinquent taxes to pay them online using a credit card, debit card, or electronic check.
The duo stressed that this is not for current taxes but only for taxes from prior years.
SAVIN contract renewal
Elk County Prison Warden Gregg Gebauer asked the commissioners for the approval of the SAVIN contract, an annual contract renewal which allows victims of crime to be notified when inmates are released from incarceration. The contract was unanimously approved.
Household Hazardous Waste
The commissioners approved a recommendation from the Solid Waste Authority to award contracts for the household hazardous waste. Additionally, a two-year contract was awarded to Veolia for the Universal Waste Program, which includes batteries and fluorescent lights.
All county offices will be closed on Monday, Feb. 19 in observance of President’s Day.
The next commissioners meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Feb. 20 in Conference Room No. 2 of the Courthouse Annex Building.
