Solar farms seek PILOT nod

JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton County Board of Supervisors will consider approving resolutions requiring Payment In Lieu of Taxes agreements for two solar farm projects at its meeting at 1 p.m. Monday at the County Office Building.

The session is due to begin with a presentation to a Fulton County OTB Scholarship Award winner.

During regular action, the board is expected to take up two solar projects. A resolution is on the agenda requiring a PILOT agreement for the Kearsage Solar, LLC array farm parcel in the town of Johnstown. A separate resolution requires a PILOT agreement for the Borrego Solar, LLC array farm parcel in the town of Oppenheim.

In other business Monday, supervisors will consider authorizing purchase of a Fulton County community app using North County Deliver Reform Incentive Payment, or DSRIP funding.

Supervisors will look to authorize two applications for grant funding through the office of District Attorney Chad Brown. One is for a Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee 2019-20 Crackdown Grant, and the other is for an Office of Victims of Crime Grant.

In personnel matters, the board will consider creating a part-time assigned counsel administrator position. Another resolution requests creation of a legal administrative assistant position in the office of the assigned counsel administrator.

A proposed resolution and order is on the agenda officially establishing Fulton County Sewer District No. 3 in Meco.

The board will mull renewal of property and liability insurance for 2019-20 for county government departments.

Three other resolutions coming out of the Finance Committee call for change orders for projects being done on the Fulton-Montgomery Community College campus.
