The Montour Area Recreation Commission Executive Director Bob Stoudt is cautiously optimistic that a long-term funding solution can be found for the Montour Preserve near Washingtonville. Stoudt says Montour County Commissioners are working on a funding plan and have made good progress over the last month. He’s unable to provide details, but some details may be revealed later this morning at the county commissioner’s meeting. Little more than a month ago, Stoudt and the rec commission board thought the Preserve might have to close in September, 2020 due limited success at fundraising. Now there is renewed hope.
