with an actual cash value over $100,000 is covered under this policy. Currently eleven graders are insured, and there is a $25,000 deductible. The
annual premium is around $8,000 to $10,000, and the insurance has never been used, so Paulson suggested thinking about dropping the policy.

proposed expansion and the possible purchase of the former Quebecor/Worldcolor building in Carroll. The Carroll facility is one of
several locations being considered for this expansion. The company currently leases a building in Atlantic and that lease is not being renewed. The
company is planning to move the Atlantic operation and two lines from the Scranton plant to a new location. Over the next two years the company is
planning to create 25 new full-time positions with an average hourly rate of $14.50 per hour. CADC requested the Supervisors provide a forgivable loan to
Scranton Manufacturing in the amount of $500 per job created, not to exceed $12,500. In the event less than 25 full-time positions are created at
$14.50 per hour, the company agrees to pay back the County $500 for each job. The company is looking at the available workforce in the Carroll area, and is
also working with DMACC on training issues. The company hopes to be re-located and up and running by April 1st. Motion by Meiners, second by
