Workshop On Municipal Roads/Law Enforcement March 24

Workshop On Municipal Roads/Law Enforcement March 24

renovoroaddamagePotter County Commissioners Doug Morley, Paul Heimel and Susan Kefover will be sponsoring a workshop on Thursday, March 24, to assist townships and boroughs with public safety and law enforcement issues stemming from natural gas drilling and related activities.

The sessions will be held at 10 am and 6 pm at the Gunzburger Building auditorium in Coudersport. More than 60 township and borough representatives from across Potter County have already signed up to participate.

Municipal officials will learn how they can work with Pennsylvania State Police from the Denton Hill barracks and local police to improve enforcement of laws pertaining to public safety and protection of roads and bridges from damage due to overweight and oversized vehicles. For more information, contact Potter County Planning Director Charlotte Dietrich at 274-8254.

Last year, the State Police and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) launched Operation FracNET, a dedicated enforcement operation focusing on commercial vehicles hauling equipment and waste water from Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling operations.

State police teams check vehicle braking systems, exterior lighting and other equipment that plays a role in operational safety, as well as whether drivers possess the appropriate operator licenses. DEP inspects for issues pertaining to vehicle weight, waste hauler authorizations and standards for maintaining safe and secure loads.

I have great respect for the township supervisors who are willing to stay on top of things as the times they are a-changing. Thank you to the commissioners and the state police and the planning directors for putting this together. We need to have law enforcement and patrols on our back roads and this is just the "ticket." Thanks again.

This could be a good thing. I hope Sweden Township Police (Bryan) gets involved as this is getting ridiculous. Another place that's bad is out by Hebron and White Chopin Road where the drivers of heavy rigs have no respect for local traffic.

You fall short because the State is short of people. Its time for the Townships and the Boroughs to belly up and support the local police and merge and make this a more economical county.

What happened to all the "JOBS" for the locale people? Seems to me these companys bring in there own people from the the south and the west parts of the the US.

Local authorities are overwhelmed, as is the PSP. Won't be long until people are fed up and begin defending and protecting themselves.

Not unless you have a gas well on your property first. Just saying.
