(Nov. 13, 2020) The Worcester County Commissioners made the following decisions during their meeting last Tuesday:

COA over expenditure 

The commissioners accepted an over-expenditure for the Worcester County Commission on Aging in the amount of $11,420. John Dorrough, executive director for the Commission on Aging, said the emergency generator needs repairs. 

He added that this is especially important because the Snow Hill Senior Center is designated as a shelter for natural disasters. 

Harold Higgins, assistant administrative officer, said that the county had enough overages in revenue to cover the unexpected expense. 

Public Works 

The commissioners approved several public works bid requests. The first was for rehabilitating West Ocean City pump stations 2-5. 

The total estimate is $150,000 and funding is included in the service area budget. 

The second was for constructing the Ocean Pines Sanitary Service Area treatment plant operations building. 

The total construction cost is estimated at $600,000. Project funding is in the 2019 bond issue.
