COAL TOWNSHIP — The work will continue on the new Northumberland County Prison as the County paid the last of Coal Township’s permit fees at the last moment. The Daily Item reports that a check for nearly $221 thousand was hand delivered by County Commissioner Sam Schiccatano to the Township ensuring that there will be no work stoppage.
Earlier in the day it was reported that tensions were building between the Township and the County, and more over between Commissioners Shoch and Schiccatano and Commissioner Best. You can hear their comments in the “On The Mark” archive. (Christopher Elio)
