Venango County commissioners will host a town hall meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the old Salvation Army building at 734 Elk St. in Franklin to update the community on the status of efforts to keep Polk Center from closing.
“We have come a long way in only five months and cleared multiple hurdles many imagined we wouldn’t overcome.” commissioners chairman Sam Breene said in a press release issued by the commissioners.
Other elected officials are expected at Thursday’s meeting, and they will provide an update on the current status of the Senate bill.
Commissioner Mike Dulaney added that “this is a very important and time sensitive issue which we as a community need to be fully engaged and involved in.”
