WARRENTON — The Warren County Senior Center was the subject of several actions at the Warren County Board of Commissioners’ monthly meeting Monday.

Commissioners awarded a contract to Bluedog Associates Inc. of Lovingston, Virginia, for the 2014-2015 nutrition program for the center. Bluedog agreed to provide congregate meals and home-delivered meals at a cost of $5.90 each.

At the request of Alicia Giddiens, director of the Senior Center, commissioners appointed Virginia Broach to a three-year term expiring July 30, 2017, on the Senior Center Advisory Council. Shelia Lowe and Charis Martin were appointed to unexpired terms, which will run until Dec. 31, 2015.

On the recommendation of Rhonda Adams Smith, Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments Area Agency on Aging, commissioners appointed Ernest Fleming III to fill a vacancy on the Aging Advisory Council. His term began immediately and will expire Dec. 31, 2015.

The board also approved a maintenance agreement with the state Department of Transportation to provide water and sanitary service to the rest area and welcome center at milepost 231 on Interstate 85 South. The county will continue to own and be responsible for maintenance and repair of the two pump stations. The Department of Transportation will reimburse the county for 100 percent of the cost of maintenance and repair of sewer lines and pump station No. 1 and its share of the cost of maintenance and repair of sewer lines and pump station No. 2 up to $20,000.

David M. Hight Jr., Victor M. Hunt and Carl D. Lynch were re-appointed to the Economic Development Commission for three-year terms expiring June 30, 2017.

The board scheduled a public hearing for 5:45 p.m. June 18 to receive comments on the 2014-2015 Home & Community Care Block Grant Funding Plan. This will happen right before the scheduled public hearing on the 2014-2015 budget.

The board declared a number of items of property to be surplus, including several items of office furniture, which they voted to convey to Heritage Quilters.

Commissioners authorized the auction of other surplus property, including a boat and two sheriff’s office Crown Victorias.
