LEHIGH COUNTY-Three commissioners say farewell

Monday, January 8, 2018 by Douglas Graves Special to the Bethlehem Press in Local News

Lehigh County Commissioner President Marty Nothstein presented farewell plaques to outgoing commissioners David Jones, Thomas Creighton and Michael Schware at the close of the meeting Dec. 20. David Jones Sr. stepped down as a Lehigh County commissioner for District 3.

Lehigh County Commissioners adopted a work agreement with the Pennsylvania Social Services Union Local 668. Children and Youth Case Worker Supervisor Edwin Rodriquez spoke briefly to the commissioners and encouraged them to visit with members of the union and through “informal chats” learn more about what the social services workers are doing and about the “challenges we face.”

Commissioner Brad Osborne thanked Rodriquez for his professional demeanor and conduct during the presentation.

The commissioners also approved a storm water management plan for the Monocacy Creek watershed.

They also approved the appointment of Gabriel Kleis to the Lehigh County Drug and Alcohol Abuse Advisory Board.

In other business, the commissioners listened to the first reading of bills and gave their preliminary approval. The bills will be approved at the next regular meeting. Among the pending motions, resolutions and bill presented were mostly professional services agreements with various vendors.
