The hearing will take place at 11 a.m. on Thursday, January 21, at the Riverstone Inn in Towanda.
Among those scheduled to testify at the hearing are representatives of the Local Housing Options Team, Area Agency on Aging, Bradford County Sanitation, Chesapeake Energy, Borough of Canton, local realtors and Bradford County Landlords’ Association.
Because of time constraints, there will not be an opportunity for a public comment period. However, written testimony will be accepted by the committee. The public can also submit comments at www.senatorgeneyaw.com following the hearing.
