The Schuylkill County Commissioners approved an agreement with the IU #29 and the Vo-Tech School at MarLin for a practical nursing program during Wednesday's meeting.

The program will use the Rest Haven facility at no cost to the county.

The Commissioners also awarded a contract for the Port Carbon Senior Center project. Smith & Smith General Contractors of Pottsville was the projects low bidder in the amount of $22,600.

Seiders Printing of Pottsville was awarded a contract to reproduce copies of the County's Comprehensive Open Space and Greenway plan on a low bid of $8,800.

Permission was granted to apply for two household and small business hazardous waste collection program grants for the 2006 annual fall cleanup. The first grant for scrap tires and electronics will be for approximately $15,000. The second is for around $10,000 to pay for part or all of the remaining cost for the scrap electronics portion of the event. A 50% match has been budgeted for the program.

The annual cleanup is scheduled for the last two weeks of September.
