County Eyes Social Services Referral Because of "poor com- munications" between county agencies, Harry Blackford, Eastern Panhandle Mental Health Center representative, on Thursday asked County Com- mission to consider establish- ment of a general information source and referral service, which would direct citizens in need to appropriate service organizations. Blackford should Commission a S-page list of 47 county agencies, which be said often are unaware of each others' func- tions and thus are unable to forward a misplaced request to the proper agency. Though Blackford suggested funds for a staff person, office and clerical help, he noted willingness to work with Other agencies, such as the Chamber of Commerce or the Ministerial Association, which already participate in similar activities. The matter was taken under consideration. Commission announced the purchase of the building situated next to the jail, on East Liberty Street, from Charles Reininger for $60,000. Businesses operating on the premises will continue, at least for one year. Commission also decided to send bid notices to manufac- turers of electronic, computer- based voting machines that were approved by county voters in the primary elections. Bids will be solicited both for lease and purchase agreements, and will require the successful bidder to post a warranty bond against machine malfunctions. A semi-annual county-wide clean-up day was discussed. It was decided to contact two county refuse collectors about their participation in the program. Mrs. Myra Bush was honored by Commission for her recent honor of being named the World Baking Champ. Contaminated marijuana can cause lung damage. NOTICE!
