County Approves Comphrensive Plan, Communications Agreement for Mobile Radios

WARREN, Pa. – The Warren County Commissioners formally approved the county’s comprehensive plan during their Sept. 27 meeting.

“We took a different approach with this one, making sure it is implementable and doesn’t sit on the shelf and collect dust,” said County Planner Dan Glotz.

The county is required to review and update its comprehensive plan every ten years.

Glotz noted that this plan outlines three main points, including a place with a healthy economy, a place with a high quality of life and a beautiful place to visit.

“Each of these has a goal,” Glotz said. “This is the product of several months of hard work.”

The commissioners also approved an agreement with Capital Area communications to bring the maintenance of mobile radios under one umbrella.

The plan calls for the mobile radios with juvenile probation, adult probation, the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office and Department of public safety to be covered under one umbrella.

Public Safety Director Ken McCorrison noted that the average cost of a mobile radio unit is $120, with portable radios for police cars and fire trucks costing $96.

“We routinely have a couple that are going to be repaired,” McCorrison said.
