’Tis the Season!
 

For those people who are new to our area of the state - and for those of us who've been here longer and may have forgotten - this Monday, Nov. 2, is the start of elk season, which ends the following Saturday, Nov. 7.

Heating Assistance Program to Open Monday
 

Residents who struggle with their home heating bills can apply for assistance from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) beginning this Monday, Nov. 2.

LIHEAP is a federally funded program that helps individuals and families pay their heating bills through home heating energy assistance grants. It also provides crisis grants to help in the event of an emergency or if a resident is in danger of losing his or her heat due to broken equipment, lack of fuel or termination of utility service.

The income eligibility guidelines for LIHEAP are set at 150% of the federal poverty income level. For example, the income limit for an individual is $19,140; for a couple, the limit is $25,860; and for a family of four, it is $39,300.

Residents may apply for LIHEAP online or by contacting the County Assistance Office in their county of residence. Click here for additional information.
 
 
Bills to Improve Mental Health Resources Head to Governor’s Desk
 

During these challenging times, it is more important than ever to ensure Pennsylvanians can access the mental health treatment they need. The House and Senate recently approved and sent to the governor’s desk two bills to help achieve that goal.

House Bills 1696 and 1439 are each intended to confirm the state’s insurers are complying with the federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act.

House Bill 1696 would require insurers to file an annual report with the Pennsylvania Department of Insurance detailing how they offer mental health coverage at the same level as medical and surgical benefits. If signed, the law would take effect in 60 days.

House Bill 1439 would require insurers to annually attest that they are in compliance with the federal law. If signed, the law would take effect immediately.
 
 
Fall Back, Don’t Spring Forward
 
 
 
State-based Health Insurance Marketplace to Open Nov. 1
 
 

Last year, Pennsylvania created its own state-based health insurance exchange known as Pennie through legislation that passed unanimously in the House (Act 42 of 2019).

Pennie’s goals include providing a seamless transition for those using HealthCare.gov, improving access to health care for all state residents, lowering health care costs and premiums, and ensuring excellent customer assistance throughout the enrollment process.

For those looking to obtain health coverage through Pennie, the new open enrollment period runs from this Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, through Jan. 15, 2021. For more information, visit www.pennie.com.
 
 
Controlled Burns to be Scheduled
 

The U.S. Forest Service is planning to conduct two fall prescribed fires on the Allegheny National Forest in Warren and Elk counties. I'll be posting updates and information here to let you know when a prescribed burn may be occurring in these areas.

Fire management staff, in consultation with Forest resource specialists, have identified ecosystem management and wildfire fuels reduction projects in the Spring Creek and the Jakes Rocks areas of the forest. Both areas have been managed successfully with prescribed fire in the past.

Voters urged to hand-deliver mail ballots immediately

Posted on October 29, 2020 by wcednews 

 Harrisburg, PA – Voters who still have their mail ballot are strongly encouraged to immediately hand-deliver their voted ballot to their county election office or other officially designated site, including drop boxes. 

 “If you haven’t already, voters with mail ballots should immediately hand-deliver your ballot to your county-designated location,” said Gov. Wolf. “Don’t wait until election day. Hand-delivering your own ballot now will give you the peace of mind that your vote will be counted, and your voice will be heard in this historic election.” 

 More than 3 million Pennsylvanians have applied to vote by mail, made possible by a new law the governor signed last year creating the most sweeping election reforms in 80 years. 

Tuesday, Oct. 27 was the last day to apply for a mail-in ballot. However, counties will mail ballots to voters once the application is verified. The deadline to drop off their completed mail ballots is 8 p.m. on election day, Tuesday, Nov. 3. Read more...

ELK SEASON RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER

 Coming off the heels of an unforgettable archery-only elk hunt when 21 of 26 bowhunters – and all 10 who hunted bulls – harvested elk, the 104 general season elk license holders, 26 for bulls and 78 for antlerless, are primed for one of the most exciting hunting adventures in the Keystone State. The general elk season begins Monday, Nov. 2 and ends Saturday, Nov. 7. 


 Elk licenses for the general season have been allocated in 12 Elk Hunt Zones, geographic elk-management units dispersed throughout the northcentral Pennsylvania elk range. Maps of the zones can be found on the elk page at www.pgc.pa.gov. Many other hunting seasons, including archery deer and bear, and most small game and turkey seasons, occur simultaneous to the general elk season. Hunters participating in the general elk season, in which firearms are permitted, must wear, at all times, 250 square inches of daylight fluorescent orange material on the head, chest, and back combined, visible 360 degrees. 

A successful hunter must attach the tag that comes with a license to the ear of an elk immediately after harvest and before the carcass is moved. In addition, within 24 hours, each hunter who harvests an elk must take it, along with his or her hunting license and elk license, to the Game Commission check station, where samples are collected to test for Chronic Wasting Disease, brucellosis and tuberculosis. 

The elk check station remains open to the public, but spectators should follow COVID-19 guidelines including social-distancing and the use of face-coverings. The check station is located at the Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette, hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day of the season. Following completion of the general elk season, one more opportunity exists for Pennsylvania elk hunters. Thirty-four hunters will participate in the antlerless elk-only late season that runs from Jan. 2 through Jan. 9, 2021. 

 Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans thanked all who participated in Pennsylvania’s annual elk-license drawing, and wished good luck to those hunters who were drawn for 2020-21 elk licenses. “Pennsylvania’s world-class elk provide hunters a one-of-a-kind – and often once-in-a-lifetime – opportunity to experience thrills like none other in Penn’s Woods, but it all starts with submitting an application before the July 31 deadline each year,” Burhans said. “Those hunters who did so this year and were lucky enough to be drawn for a license all will have unforgettable hunts, and I wish them all success.”

Trumpkin Decorating Contest

 





Friday, October 30, 2020

To the citizens of the borough of Coudersport:

I want to emphatically state that I have all the confidence in the Coudersport Fire Department, their board members and the entire fighting 48 during this difficult time. 

   

The women and men of our fire department immediately and transparently came to the Borough of Coudersport to inform us of misappropriated funds. They immediately removed the treasurer from his seat and all access to the facility and accounts. 

  

My knowledge of this event is that this incident is confined to one individual who, allegedly, betrayed the fire department and every tax paying individual. I am sure that the investigation will be thorough, complete and just.    I have no doubt, if this individual is found responsible, he will be punished to the full extent of the law and made financially responsible for every cent of restitution. 

 

I can assure the Borough residents that this will in no way interfere with fire protection or services provided by the fire department.  Additionally, this will not raise taxes nor has the fire department asked for additional funds through taxation.  

  

It is my hope that everyone can see this for what it is and that no one judge nor blame the hardworking volunteers that put their lives on the line to protect us 24/7/365.  Our community is truly blessed by their service and they deserve our continued praise and financial support. 

  

Again I stand with all the women and men of the Coudersport Fire Department and ask that you do the same.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TO VISIT WILLIAMSPORT REGIONAL AIRPORT IN MONTOURSVILLE SATURDAY NIGHT

***President Trump Visit***
Where: Williamsport Regional Airport in Montoursville, PA
When: Saturday 10/31/2020 at 8:00pm
 
We have been notified that President Trump will be arriving at the airport for a campaign rally. We wanted to make a post to assist everyone in helping them understand what to expect.
If you live in town and have children trick or treating please review the post made earlier.
 
THINGS TO EXPECT.
The population of Montoursville may more than quadruple tomorrow. You can expect heavy traffic and difficulty finding parking. Buses have been arranged for transportation from the Mall to the event just like last time. We do not have the time when they will start running yet. We are working on that and will update when we know.
 
There may be protesters. Be respectful of their rights and give them space. We did not have any problem between to the protestors and Trump supporters last year and we do not expect it this year.
 
There will be a lot of people from out of town not familiar with Montoursville. They may be asking for directions or other general questions. Please be hospitable.
 
Non-emergency Police responses may be delayed.
 
Parking will be challenging. The Borough is not opposed to residents charging visitors for parking on their property. This helped a lot last year with parking congestion.
 
There is a High School playoff football game in town this day as well. Please consider avoiding Broad St when going to the game. (especially Loyalsock visitors). Consider I-180 to exit 21 and travel south on N Loyalsock Ave to Arch St to get to the high School.
 
PEOPLE ATTENDING THE EVENT
Remember, if you plan on parking in Montoursville, entry to the event must be made on foot from South Loyalsock Ave. Crossing the railroad tracks from S Arch, S Montour, Tombs Ln, PennDOT or Savoy Plaza will NOT be allowed. After the event you may cross the railroad tracks when you leave. The train will be stopped and will not be traveling that stretch of tracks.
 
Please find a legal place to park and plan on the possibility of walking over a mile. Also remember where you parked your car. Buses will be running from the Mall to and from the event as well (we will update on times when we know). We ask all ride sharing companies and taxis to drop off on Broad St near S Loyalsock Ave. Do not block driveways or alleys.
 
Please pay attention to the weather and dress appropriately.
 
The decision has been made to completely shut down Mill St all day Saturday and will be reopened Sunday Morning. The dog park will remain open. Access will not be allowed to the soccer fields or baseball fields due to security concerns and concerns about visitors parking on and unintentionally ruining the fields. I believe a representative of AYSO has been contacted.
 
There will be a designated protest area in the 200 block of Jordan Ave at S Loyalsock Ave with Police presence to ensure everyone’s safety like last year.
 
We expect people to start waiting in line early. There are no prohibited items while waiting in line. You can have chairs, food and drinks. You cannot bring those items inside through the metal detectors. You can leave them off the road and pick them up after the event. The Police cannot guarantee the safety of items left unattended.
 
I spoke with event staff and they warned dehydration and low blood sugar caused a lot of people to pass out at previous events. There will be emergency medical staff on scene but you should start preparing for the weather and other conditions now. If you plan to park in town and walk, it is a LONG walk. THE BUSES FROM THE MALL CAN GET YOU CLOSER. (times will be announced later)
 
No drones are permitted anywhere in the Borough. If you pilot a drone, expect a visit from the Secret Service.
 
There will be a large crowd. Please do everything possible to protect yourself and others from the spread of Covid-19. Please visit the State website or speak with a trusted medical professional about precautions you should take. 
 
If you live in the Borough… Police, Fire and EMS will still be responding to routine and emergency calls. Please use the 911 Center’s emergency number or non-emergency number. Do not call the Police Department directly.
 
-PROHIBITED ITEMS LIST
 Aerosols
 Alcoholic beverages
 Backpacks, bags, roller bags, suitcases bags exceeding size restrictions (12”x14”x5”)
 Balloons
 Balls

 Tripods
 Umbrellas

I spoke with Security Staff and was told that any items medically necessary may be brought into the event (wheel chairs, inhalers, etc). No needles for medical issues allowed into the event. (ie. insulin, epi-pens). Also no vaping instruments of any kind may enter the event. What you see above is what I know. I overheard staff talking about metal campaign buttons. They said you should take them off prior to approaching the metal detectors then you can put them back on after. This saves a lot of time.
 
I tried to cover every issue I could think of. I will still be answering questions on Facebook Messenger from now till this is over. It may take time. More posts may follow as we get more information or if I missed anything. We were given less time to plan for this event than last time. 
 
We also have a High School football game and Halloween to consider as well. The Montoursville Police as well as Borough Workers are working very hard to make sure everyone is provided a safe night. Thank you and please enjoy your visit to Montoursville!
 
Sincerely,
Mayor Bagwell, Chief Gyurina and Deputy Chief Bentley
