Potter County In National Spotlight (x2!)

July 27th, 2021

Potter County was recently in the national spotlight for two of its ongoing initiatives. During the annual convention of the National Assn. of Counties in Prince George’s County, Md., Planning/GIS Director Will Hunt and Commissioner Paul Heimel shared details on activities that had been identified by NACo as best practices. Hunt’s topic was the migration of geographic information systems (GIS) to a centralized database. His department’s skills with GIS have resulted in numerous improvements to county mapping services, with enhanced security and multiple benefits to the recorder of deeds office, tax assessment department, planning office and other county services, as well as agencies, businesses and individuals seeking access to public records. Heimel detailed Potter County’s “broadband for all” initiative to bring high-speed internet to unserved or underserved areas of the county. He also discussed the benefits of the Tri-Co Connections broadband project, including bringing connectivity to seasonal residents and telecommuters, as well as introducing senior citizens to internet-based services.
