Johnson said she hopes to include community organizations in the celebration including local Boy and Girl Scout troops, volunteer fire departments, and town historians in the process.
"The goal here is to create pride in the community," she said.
Minority Leader Bob Farley, R-Glenville, echoed Johnson's sentiments in what was one of the first bipartisan resolutions of the year.
"We want to see the community involved so that they can enjoy and celebrate the county's history," said Farley. "We want to be supportive of a broad base commission that invites as many participants as possible."
