Officials From Three Counties Attend ‘Boot Camp’

March 18th, 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. Last week, elected officials and administrators had an 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. 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.  Officials from Potter, Tioga and Elk counties participated. Instructors were provided by the Pa. State Assn. of Boroughs. Among topics to covered were: 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.
