Schuylkill County Commissioners on Wednesday approved a request from Lisa Fishburne of County Mental Health/Development Services for an extension of the Schuylkill County Transportation Authority’s contract to advertise bus wraps for the Mental Health Awareness Campaign .

The extension will extend the contract from July 1 to June 30, 2023. The cost is $1,800 per month, which will increase the contract price to $21,600.

Also on Wednesday, the commissioners approved:

• The State’s 2022-2023 Hazardous Materials Response Fund grant agreement for $20,315. The grant provides assistance to counties to develop an integrated emergency response capacity for health hazards, hazards and risks that hazardous materials pose to the general public.

• A contract with Teleosoft for the licensed program “County Suite Civil Court”. The one-time license fee for the Prothonotary’s Office will be $377,367. The first payment of $188,683 will be made upon signing the contract, with the remaining 26 payments being made with each milestone reached. Payments will be made from the Prothonotary Automation Fund. This program will allow the Prothonotary’s office to offer electronic filing and online document viewing, said Prothonotary Bridget M. Miller.

The commissioners approved the same software for the sheriff’s department.

The one-time license fee for the department will be $181,086.

The first payment of $90,543 will be made upfront upon signing the contract, with the remaining 27 payments to be made as each milestone is reached.

This program will allow the Sheriff’s Department to offer work with the Prothonotary on electronic service.

Today, staff from the prothonotary’s office haul bundles of documents to the sheriff’s department every day.

Deputy Sheriff Brian K. Tobin thanked Miller for his work bringing the software to the county. “It was a very long and painstaking process,” he said.

“It will move the county forward 20 years.”

He said it will take about three years for the program to be fully operational.

“It’s quite a business,” he said.

• A request from County Chief Financial Officer Paul E. Buber for an additional budget appropriation of $150,000.

The money is for the social services department, Buber said.
