‘Boot Camp’ For Local Elected Officials Coming March 2-3

February 14th, 2018

Times have changed in township and borough governing. New state laws have added responsibilities — but also opportunities — for public officials to improve services for their constituents. Next month, elected officials and administrators will have opportunity to receive training during a two-day “boot camp” at the Gunzburger Building in Coudersport. Potter County Commissioners Doug Morley, Susan Kefover and Paul Heimel approved a proposal by Planning Director Will Hunt to provide the class from 9 am to 4 pm on Friday and Saturday, March 2-3. It’s part of a broader effort to develop a stronger county/municipality partnership in Potter County, and to equip local leaders with knowledge and skills required to do their jobs effectively.  This photo was taken during last year’s classes. Officials from Potter, Tioga and McKean counties have already signed up for the March training and registration remains open. Instructors are being provided by the Pa. State Assn. of Boroughs. Among topics to be covered are: Meeting Procedures, Sunshine Law, Managing Public Comment, Committees and Boards, Ordinances and Resolutions, Bidding Requirements, Fire and Police Management, Personnel Management, Municipal Budgeting, Taxation Requirements, Basic Planning and Zoning, Risk Management, Public Works and Code Administration. More details are available from PSAB’s Terri Dickow at 1-800-232-7722, extension 1042, or tdickow@boroughs.org.
