JOHNSTOWN — Fulton County Budget Director Alice Kuntzsch will present the county’s tentative 2019 budget to the Board of Supervisors at its meeting starting at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the County Office Building.

A public hearing on the county’s 2019-20 capital plan will be conducted at 1:30 p.m..

Kuntzsch’s budget presentation to supervisors will be held at 2:30 p.m.

In regular action Tuesday, the board is expected to “accept” both the tentative budget and capital plan, but their adoption won’t be until a later date.

Supervisors will consider a proposed resolution urging New York state to fully fund new costs incurred by counties related to the new Raise the Age Law, and develop a comprehensive transition and waiver process during implementation.

Personnel items on the agenda include naming Fulton County Industrial Development Agency Board of Directors members.

The board will mull endorsing a “concept” plan for the county’s Gloversville annex, which may entail moving the Probation Department there.

A resolution is on the agenda authorizing a grant agreement with the state Department of Transportation for the county’s runway and taxiway lighting and perimeter construction project at the County Airport.

Supervisors will consider awarding a bid for electronics recycling, and a resolution to set landfill tipping fees for 2019.

Several resolutions are on the board’s agenda related to Fulton-Montgomery Community College. They include change orders for the campus labs/classrooms building, and PE building/bathrooms and locker rooms projects.
