Commissioners Seek Support from Senator Scarnati

January 7th, 2018

Sheriff Glenn Drake and Chuck Dillon during a lighter moment at last week's meeting.Chuck Dillon (right), an aide to State Senator Joe Scarnati, attended last week’s meeting of the Potter County Board of Commissioners to seek input on state government issues and related matters. Funding for 911 emergency communications and for state-mandated programs provided by Potter County Human Services were among the priorities the board asked Dillon to share with the senator. The commissioners also asked Dillon to convey their appreciation for his support of higher payments-in-lieu-of-taxes for state-owned forest and park land, and his advocacy to include new curbs as part of PennDOT’s Rt. 6 reconstruction project through downtown Coudersport. Also at last week’s meeting, Potter County Sheriff Glenn Drake’s (left) restructuring of his staff got the green light. Changes in job descriptions and salaries will better reflect the duties and requirements of the positions. Drake detailed his deputy sheriffs’ job duties, training requirements and potentially dangerous assignments in support of his requests. When the restructuring is complete, the sheriff’s office will be staffed by Drake and Chief Deputy Larry Goodwin, as well as two full-time deputies and an administrative aide.
