County to seek grant to upgrade Belmont Complex

| Friday, Oct. 8, 2004

KITTANNING -- More improvements are on the way for the Belmont Complex.

At a public meeting yesterday, the Armstrong County Commissioners approved a resolution to submit a grant application and agreement to the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

The grant would be used to replace arena floor matting, lifeguard chairs, the pool's chlorine system, railing around the pool and diving stands and to install additional parking lot lights.

The total cost of the items is $175,000. The grant with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is for half of the amount of the project with the county and the Belmont Complex combining to provide a 50 percent match.

"It addresses safety issues," Jeanna Baker, Belmont Complex assistant manager, said.

In other county business, the commissioners:

-- Proclaimed October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

-- Approved the municipal waste disposal contracts between the county and Greenridge Reclamation Landfill of Scottdale and County Landfill of Leeper.

-- Approved the agreement between the county and the Department of State for the county plan to address the requirements of HAVA, Help America Vote Act.

-- Approved an increase of $4,643.50 for sanitary sewer projects in Kiski Township.

-- Reappointed Jeff Fullerton, Philip Tack, Richard Vesley and Vickie DeThomas to the Local Workforce Investment Board for three-year terms.
