County leaders will move forward with business at Pinnacle State Park, county Hall of Fame
A public hearing on the state’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), awarding a bid on construction at Pinnacle State Park, and induction into the Steuben County Hall of Fame top county legislators agenda when they meet at 10 am, Monday in the county Annex, 20 East Morris St. Bath.
The grant, through the New York State Office of Community Renewal, makes funds available to eligible local governments for housing, economic development, public facilities, public infrastructure and planning activities, with the principal purpose of benefiting low/moderate income persons.
Steuben proposes to submit an application for funds to repair or replace failed septic systems, wells, and water and sewer laterals.
In other action, a bid is expected to be awarded for construction of a communications tower at Pinnacle State Park along Ackerson Road in Addison. County emergency management officials say the tower will provide additional capabilities within the southeast portion of Steuben, including the towns of Lindley, Addison, Tuscarora and Woodhull.
Legislators also are expected to approve inductees into the county’s 2022 Hall of Fame.
Since 1976, more than 500 people have been nominated for recognition, with more than 150 individuals inducted into the Hall of Fame. Notable honorees include US Rep Amory Houghton, aviator and pioneer Glenn Curtiss, musician Duane Eddy and newswoman and suffragette Anna Cadogan Etz .
In addition to a public hearing on the CDBG grant scheduled before the board meets at 10 am, a second public hearing is set on Local Law No. 4, which is relative to the administration, operation and apportionment of costs for the county’s Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Plan.
