KITTANNING — Armstrong County Commissioners approved a number of agreements on Thursday including a contract for a sewer line project in Parks.

Carmen Johnson, assistant director of the county's planning and development office, said the lowest bid for the Garvers Ferry Road Sewer Line Extension project came in at $294,324.

That bid, by Klingensmith Enterprises Inc., was over budget by $21,000, said Johnson. She noted, however, that Parks Township Municipal Authority has agreed to pay that additional amount for the project which is expected to be around $331,000.

The bulk of funding was awarded through a competitive Community Block Grant, said Johnson.

She noted after the meeting that the project's service area includes four households as well as the Pine View Personal Care Home, which houses 26 residents.

Commissioners David Battaglia, Robert Bower and Richard Fink voted to award the contract to Klingensmith.

In other business, the commissioners voted 3-0 to approve an agreement between the county and INFOCON Corp. for user license upgrade in the prothonotary's office.

Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts Brenda C. George did not attend the meeting, but Battaglia explained the cost of 25 licenses at $200 each would be purchased from a prothonotary's fund and would not affect the general fund.

The license purchase will allow George to update her processing system in an effort to go paperless since the judges have bought laptops for use on the bench.
