Improvements, Additions To Potter County WebsiteMore improvements have been made to the Potter County website, aimed at making county services more convenient for the public while improving efficiencies with the county government. The site is available at pottercountypa.net (specific pages can be found under a “Departments” tab on the landing page).
Most recently, Director of Elections Sandy Lewis has posted a listing of all of the offices that are up for election this year in each township, borough and school district. Several interactive features are available, including online purchasing of dog licenses, remote access to records from the Recorder of Deeds office, downloadable forms for the Homestead Exemption from real estate taxes and others.
Developed by the Potter County Commissioners, the site features phone numbers and email addresses for county and municipal officials; current and archived information on the county government and Potter County in general; the Potter County Board of Auditors report on county financial records; minutes from business meetings of the Potter County Board of Commissioners; downloadable copies of the Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance; archived copies of the Shale Gas Roundup and Potter County Veterans News newsletters; links to information on benefits and other services for military veterans; downloadable applications for Small Games of Chance licenses and other features. Soon, a new website for Potter County Human Services will be launched and incorporated on pottercountypa.net.
Internet users are encouraged to bookmark the site on their home computers. The new site complements a separate web-based service for information from or about the county government, Potter County Today. Together, the two information services deliver timely information, updated on a daily basis, as well as connections to many other sources.
