MAYVILLE – The Chautauqua County Legislature will begin looking into the process of raising the per diem fees for the county coroners when its administrative services committee meets Tuesday in Mayville. Currently, the per diem rate for the coroners is $70, but the new resolution sponsored by Chairman Jay Gould would increase the rate to $80. The increase would be retroactive to Jan. 1 and the increase has already been reflected in the 2015 county budget so the current resolution is a procedural formality. Tuesday’s committee meeting begins at 5 p.m.
In addition to the administrative services committee, the county’s public facilities committee will also meet at 4p.m. today. Among the items on the agenda is a new lease agreement for Cornell Cooperative Extension for its use of space in the Frank W. Bratt County Agricultural Center in the Town of Ellicott.
Both meetings will take place in room 331 of the Gerace office building and are open to the public.
