The Oakland Township Supervisors met on October 31 for their first meeting since September 3. All were present as well as assistant roadmaster Richard Norris and auditor Howard Potter.

Among items discussed during the roads report were potholes on Erie Ave., and what was said to be "a big job" on High St. Several options were discussed; a final decision as to what repairs can be done will be made when the budget for 2003 is prepared.

Supervisor Cowperthwait related that all amusement tax reports are "up to speed." But, he said, one in particular should be addressed further at the end of the year, and possibly be discussed with the township’s attorney.

Elected Officials Get Pay Raises

Elected Susquehanna County officials will get four percent pay raises in 2004 and 2005 according to last week’s 2-1 vote by the Board of County Commissioners. And, in another 2-1 vote, the commissioners set the annual increments for the elected officials in 2006 and 2007 at 1.4 percent.

By law, the commissioners must establish the salaries of elected county officials one year before their respective offices are up for re-election so that the salaries cannot be changed during their terms in office. A new four-year term of office will begin on Jan. 1, 2004 so the salaries were set for the years 2004 through 2007.

The exception to the raises was in the county coroner’s position, where Anthony Conarton pleaded for more money and left the meeting room with his second 20 percent pay raise in four years. In 2000, the commissioners increased Mr. Conarton’s pay from $19,063 to $23,067. In 2004, his salary will jump from $25,697 to $31,000.
