What Can You Help With
The Potter County Commissioners chose an appropriate setting to announce a new outreach effort for volunteers willing to serve on any of several county authorities, commissions and advisory boards. Commissioner Paul Heimel and Chief Clerk/Administration Director Todd Brown put out the call during today’s Volunteering element for the Leadership Potter County class, hosted by the Potter County Education Council.
In an effort to broaden diversity, geographic representation and background knowledge, the commissioners will be building a roster of individuals who have a willingness to volunteer. Among the organizations that have occasional vacancies are the Planning Commission, Solid Waste Authority, Housing and Redevelopment Authorities, Human Services Advisory Committees, Conservation District and others.
In the coming weeks, the commissioners will circulate a summary of the many appointive positions/responsibilities and reach out to citizens from across Potter County to encourage them to volunteer. As vacancies arise or incuments’ terms expire, the commissioners will rely on that database to determine who might be candidates to serve.
