County board scheduled to meet Monday

JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton County Board of Supervisors will consider approving three county union contracts at its meeting at 1 p.m. Monday at the County Office Building.

Monday’s meeting is now open to the public, which should access the building through the front West Main Street entrance at the state Department of Motor Vehicle office. Board meetings are held in the second floor Supervisor’s Chambers.

On the agenda for the meeting are three separate resolutions approving collective bargaining agreements between the county and: the Nurses Unit, Civil Services Employees Association Local 1000; Fulton County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association; and the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Employees Alliance.

The board will most likely go into a closed-door, executive session at the chambers before authorizing the three new union contracts.

Monday’s monthly board meeting also will include a public hearing at 1:30 a.m. regarding a proposed local law authorizing 12 and 13-year-old licensed hunters to hunt deer with a firearm or crossbow during hunting season under supervision of an adult licensed hunter.

The resolution to approve the local law will kick off a set of 43 resolutions supervisors will consider during Monday’s meeting.

In other business, the board will consider a resolution opposing the legislative agenda of certain Adirondack environmental groups seeking to decouple broadband and cellular expansion coverage in the Adirondack State Park.

A resolution is on the agenda accepting American Rescue Plan funds (Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds) from the U.S. Department of Treasury.

The board will consider a resolution authorizing the sale of 54 Forest St. in Gloversville, without stipulation, for a Gloversville Neighborhood Improvement Project.
