The Warren County Commissioners unanimously approved a number of repository tax bids and county vehicle bids during their Wednesday morning meeting.
Lot number WN-745-863100-000 in Pleasant Township was awarded to Keith Klingler for $100; lot number WN-892-167000-000 in Clarendon Borough to Steven Smith for $50; and lot number YN-006-84244-000 in Brokenstraw Township to Steven Smith for $50.
"We've taken the repository bid book and updated it into one consolidated spread sheet so people don't have to look for various years, that's helping to get these properties available to people," County Treasurer Dennis Munksgard said. "So we should be able to turn more of these over and get them back on the tax books."
A 2001 Ford 15-passenger van was awarded to Tiffany Teraska for $2,535; a 2003 Chevrolet Impala for $1,250 to Chapman's Auto Sales; a 1998 Dodge Neon for $865.02 and 2001 Chevrolet Impala $805.04 to Kale Asp; and a 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe to Harold Cochran Jr. for $1,225.
The commissioners approved an agreement with the Erie County Department of Health for $1,250 to continue to monitor tobacco sales to minors.
"We subcontract to them for Warren County to our sheriff's department to monitor sales of tobacco products of underage smokers," Commissioner John Eggleston said. "We've been doing this for years."
The commissioners also approved a proclamation for National Farm City Week from Friday, Nov. 16 through Thursday, Nov. 22.
"On behalf of the Farm Bureau we appreciate your recognition of the importance of agriculture in Warren County and thank you for your proclamation," Farm Bureau member Ed Sekerak said.
