The Seneca County Board of Supervisors approved an opioid settlement between the state, its counties and drug makers at its meeting Tuesday.
The Finger Lakes Times reports the county will receive $77,000 as its share of the settlement. At least 50% of the money must be used for drug addiction treatment services.
Also Tuesday, supervisors approved a social media policy allowing the county to ban comments on its Health Department website, over concerns about COVID-19 misinformation. Lodi’s Kyle Barnhart, Waterloo At-Large members Michael Enslow and Bob Shipley, and Ovid’s Joseph Borst were opposed.
County Manager Mitch Rowe said the county is seeking proposals from professional firms for a county solid waste management plan. The deadline for bids to be returned is February 1. The Public Works Committee and the full board must approve the proposal.
