The Washington County Commissioners voted to give the one-year contract to the sole bidder, Leiter's Fine Catering Inc. of Williamsport. The contract includes options to renew for two additional years.

The company will have the exclusive right to sell food and drinks in the Multipurpose Building.

The contract would not forbid other companies from selling food at outdoor events at the Ag Center.




The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday approved appointment of Dave Campbell to the Washington County Board of Examiners and Supervisors for Electricians.

He will replace Ron Kinsey, who has stepped down from that position.




The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday awarded a $410,134.70 contract for construction of a storm water management pond.

The contract was given to D.L. George & Sons Construction Co. of Waynesboro, Pa., the lowest of four bidders.

The pond is southwest of the new Phoenix Color building north of the Hagerstown Regional Airport.

Phoenix Color is responsible for 25 percent of the construction costs or about $102,534, Chief Engineer Terry McGee said. The Federal Aviation Administration is picking up about $31,000 of the costs, McGee said.

The work will start around mid-July and will take about 140 days, McGee said.




The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday approved two agreements regarding the Rural Heritage Museum.

One agreement is for the Washington County Historical Society to loan the Old County Store for exhibition at the museum at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center.

The store, which includes artifacts from a prior building, was previously at the Miller House, Assistant County Attorney John Martirano said.

The second is for the Friends of the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum Inc., to assume full responsibility for management, operation and use of the museum gift shop.

The only cost to the county for the agreements is about $1,600 for insurance policies, Martirano said.

It is not known when the museum will open, he said.
