Local firms win contracts for Garden building renovations

Commissioners remember Bud Yost

LOCK HAVEN — Two local firms were awarded bids by the Clinton County commissioners for materials for renovations to the county’s Garden Building at Thursday’s meeting.

A bid of $47,454.97 was awarded to Your Building Center for building materials, and for electrical materials, a bid was awarded to Denney Electric in the amount of $7,635.84.

“It was a rather complicated bid in how it was put out. County chief clerk Jann Meyers worked with our solicitor to review the bids and that is why the resolution is the way it is,” explained commissioner Jeff Snyder.

The renovations are planned on the second floor, specifically for the probation department.

The board also took a moment to honor and remember former county commissioner Harold “Bud” Yost, who passed away on Tuesday.

“It was with great sorrow that we learned of the passing of Bud Yost. Although we did not serve side-by-side with Bud in the role of commissioner, we did know Bud personally and thought highly of him as a fellow public servant,” Snyder said. “We know of him as a local athletic phenomenon, as a business owner and hard worker. We knew of his record of public service, having served as mayor of Lock Haven and two terms as commissioner. It is an honor to offer our sincere and heartfelt sympathy to the members of his family.”
