The Allegany County elected officials will gather today at 2pm in Belmont for a regular full board meeting. As has become the “norm” under the new administration, the county will honor a citizen for contributing to the “betterment of Allegany County.

The resolutions before the board today are fairly standard county government business: Contracts, fund transfers, equipment purchases, jobs, and information technology technocratics.

All open meetings of the Allegany County Legislature are livestreamed on the county Facebook page. You do not need to be a Facebook user to watch the live meetings, here is the link:
