Indiana County commissioners approve farm loan reduction
The Indiana County Commissioners took care of two brief items of business at their regular Nov. 13 meeting, with Commissioner Dave Frick leading the session in the absence of Chairman Rodney Ruddock.
A reduction was approved for a revolving loan granted to Fabin Brothers Farms, LLC and Fabin Brothers Holdings, LLC in May. The loan was reduced by $50,000 to $200,000. The reduction was made after time constraints resulted in the farm purchasing equipment that was included in the original loan agreement but was needed sooner than expected.
The revolving loan agreement provided funding for the Homer City-area farm to upgrade its capacity for storing corn.
Three private provider contracts for the county's Children and Youth Services agency also received the commissioners' approval. Professional Family Care Services of Johnstown and Justice Works Youthcare, Inc. of Pittsburgh both were approved for non-placement family group decision-making services. Foster care placement services with The Bair Foundation of Pennsylvania of New Wilmington also was approved.
The next regular meeting of the commissioners will be 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Indiana County Courthouse.
