Former Mifflin County Commissioner Mark A. Sunderland has announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for commissioner in the spring primary.  Sunderland has served as an Armagh Township Supervisor for eight years, as well as eight years as a county commissioner.  He has operated a family farm in Treaster Valley since 1975, and is a long-time member of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau.  Pennsylvania’s Primary Election is May 21st.

 

Falling rock near Newport Borough at the Howe-Greenwood Township Line in Perry County will close the westbound lanes of Route 22 – 322 beginning at 7:00 am on Monday, March 18th, weather permitting.  PennDOT engineers determined that recent weather left several large sandstone blocks with weakened support. There is concern that rocks or portions of the slope may fall onto the highway.  Route 22 – 322 westbound will be closed to through traffic for up to two weeks while the unstable rock is removed.  Until then, a detour onto Route 34 southbound, West Shortcut Road and West Juniata Parkway will be available for motorists.  In addition, message signs will be placed along the route approaching the Clarks Ferry Bridge, well before the Newport exit.

 

Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Secretary Dennis Davin will join local officials and community leaders from around Mifflin County today for a roundtable discussion about the region’s challenges in its fight against blight, and to discuss how the bipartisan “Restore Pennsylvania” proposal could help municipalities eradicate blight.  “Restore Pennsylvania” is a statewide plan to aggressively address the commonwealth’s vital infrastructure needs.  The roundtable will be at the Mifflin County Courthouse on North Wayne Street in Lewistown at 10:00 am.
