911 Center back up and running

June 16, 2011

Elk County Commissioner Daniel R. Freeburg reported late Thursday night that the county's 911 Center was again fully operational following a late Tuesday evening evacuation due to noxious fumes.
According to Freeburg, a complete run-through had been completed and no remnants were detected.
Commissioners reported last Friday that back-up batteries were fuming during a charge process.

School district avoids layoffs

June 16, 2011

Unlike many of the school districts in the state, the Ridgway Area School District will not be forced to freeze wages or lay off their teachers.
Concerned resident Scott Warnick attended Tuesday evening's school board meeting to ask the tough question.
“I see all of the other districts are having to lay people off, but I haven't heard anything about ours, which I am happy not to hear that we might have to lay off or freeze wages,” Warnick said. “I see Brookville [school district] had to and down around State College, and I wanted to know how we are coming with our budget?”
