I would like to know where the county is getting the money for these new jobs.

Less money for Potter county via the new state budget for the programs and positions the state demands we provide...so lets creat a job for more tax money to pay 30K a year, shall we?! hhmmmmm

I don't what ema director does to get paid now he wants to spend more money. I think we need new commissioners that can think

I don't see the purpose of ema with the person we have in there. I think they better open there eyes.

Mr. Hetrick HAS to be kidding! For what he, or one of his assistants get paid, they can do 'operations and training'. But, then they may not have time to fax the weather report all over creation...

Maybe we will have some extra money for this new position if the new DA holds to his campaign promise not to collect the "full-time" salary or heck if they change it pack to part-time.

You dumb ding dong the new DA can't accept a pay cut. His salary is set by the state and there is a law for this. If you have followed the news for the last several years. You'd know this. Like any other polition, it is one of the tactics that he used to get elected.

Maybe Hetrick himself should take a pay cut.

how many new jobs has been created this year about 150,000.00 dollars worth i just can,t believe the stupid county goverment how come all of a sudden we have to have all these new positions,i guess the commissioners are to lazey to do the jobs or not bright enough.they need to go before we are all broke from the new taxes to pay the new hires

Potter Counties economy is shrinking every month but we keep growing the government. Is Human Services still only working 2 days per week? I haven't even noticed.

I have a real hard time believing John is too busy to do some training. Make yourself look busy, it's the best way to keep your job.

Oh yes....Emergency Management and preparation is such a waste of money...untill you or a family member needs help and it does not come. Then it's the governments fault. Remember New Orleans??

YEAH! New Orleans. Those people CHOSE not to leave. Why should I feel sorry for them?

I couldn't possibly imagine what "emergency" could happen in Potter County that I couldn't protect my family from. Name ONE. Snow storm? Have snowmobiles. Flood? Live on a hill. Tornado? Not in Potter. Bad water? Have spring. No electric? Have natural gas generator. No natural gas? Have my own well. No food? Have 35 beef cows. Get it? I don't depend on the govt to keep me safe. They would be the last ones I would call in an emergency.

The bottom line is, with the way the economy is who can afford to pay another salary?

from Major Corporations right down to the little guy - DOWN SIZING!! The lucky ones keep there jobs but are forced to cross-train better yet, MULTI-TASK!!!

Listen up John, quit trying to be the Buddy Boss and put your foot down!! Keep them off face book and Yahoo.... This should free some people up!

Youbetcha, loved your post!

Too many hands out, not enough hands helping themselves. I have never ever looked to the government be it State, Local or Federal for a hand out but I sure as hell keep giving in the form of TAX, TAX and more darn TAX!!!

People here in Potter County can't pay their taxes now- and yet there may be yet another job "created?" Get real, commissioners if you want to keep your jobs for another four years. Human Services needs money to keep running and you're "considering" creating another job for EMA? I have the feeling that we'll be electing yet another new board of commissioners the next time around. I'm still wondering how they'll pay for the upkeep on the school this winter when the utility bills start coming in. Big government doesn't belong in our county- leave it in Harrisburg.

I know nothing said...

I'm thinking that the structure is being put in place to make sure everyone is rounded up to take the manditory flu vaccine once the phony pandemic is declared either that or to help with weapon confiscation once a national emergency is declared.

Just ask yourself, why would we need this here?

What grave unforseen circumstances could there be, that we have not dealt with already here?

Snow, below zero temps, hurricane, tornado, floods. fires?

My hunch is, we would be better off planning to deal with the influx of people running TO this area, should there be a national emergency.

I think you got it right with weapon confiscation. That will be soon, with a made up-hyped up national emergency excuse.

I would really like to fill out an application for this job. should it pass. but wanted to check first to see if they are taken apps. or if Mr. Hetrick is just going to fill this position with one of his other friend like he did w. the last position that got filled.
If anyone has any info on this job please let me know I wasnt joking about filling out an app.
