Teaming To Develop Potter County Jobs

Potter County Jobs

gloablEfforts are being made to make Potter County employers more aware of programs that can help them land government contracts, connect with international buyers, qualify for low-interest loans and develop their workforce. Four specialists from the Ridgway-based Northcentral Pa. Regional Planning and Development Commission met Tuesday with Potter County Commissioners Doug Morley, Paul Heimel and Susan Kefover, along with Joe Pagano from the county’s Redevelopment Authority.

They emerged with plans to improve outreach efforts to businesses which could benefit from services Northcentral administers. One of the Potter County stops for the Northcentral delegation was a lumber company in Roulette that is planning to expand its operations and add jobs.

Federal spending is going to increase when Congress passes an economic stimulus package. At the same time, marketplace demand for alternative energy components, powdered metal products and value-added wood products is expected to increase, the specialists reported.

Meeting with the county leaders were:

Bob Imhof, Procurement Outreach Director: The Procurement Assistance Program is designed to increase the number of area companies receiving government contracts by educating management on how to market their products to the government and to offer technical assistance and support.

Christine Perneski, Export Marketing Director. The Export Marketing Program assists clients that are interested or engaged in international trade. The major objective is to stimulate local economic development through growth in world trade.

Pat Brennen, Loan Program Director. The Loan Program supports capital development projects that will create or save jobs. Businesses that are eligible for financing include: manufacturing, industrial services, warehousing, distribution, tourism and agriculture.

Susan Snelick, Workforce Investment Board Director. The board works to develop an educated and skilled workforce through CareerLink Centers. Potter County Today

Why don't you people put some effort into helping our communities, then, if you think you can do better! All you do is sit back and complain....I highly doubt you contribute ANYTHING to this county, so shut it!!

At least someone is trying to do something instead of arguing about everything that gets proposed by the county leaders. I think this could be the atart of something good for the county.

Coudersport should start bingo again to help raise money for the pool

I think the Doctors and Teachers should donate $5,000.00 each for the town pool.

Noone has any $, so who is really going to be involved with Bingo, Fish Fry's, Spaghetti Dinners, 50/50's, Hoagie Sales, and Swim In Thongs!
Maybe the Dream Team should advertise the Annex to businesses to brings jobs to our community and quit messing around with this kind of crap!

I only pray that our commissioners can bring something to this area - God's Country and no one can get a job??? Pretty sad!!! My prayers that you truly mean to help get something in place and soon. And as in small towns don't just hire a selected few - give everyone a chance and we might just come out of this. Bless you- we are hurting!!
