The Susquehanna County Jail Board is legal.
At its meeting last week, the Board of County Commissioners passed a resolution giving the Jail Board full control of the county prison system including the right to hire and fire.
A number of years ago the county had the choice of creating a Jail Board or allowing the jail to fall under the jurisdiction of the county sheriff. The commissioners in office at the time opted for a Jail Board, a move that required passage of a resolution establishing the board.
"We're doing everything we can, as fast as we can." So said Roadmaster George Sansky at a meeting of the Harford Township Supervisors on July 25 to the small group of citizens who came out to hear the latest about flood damage – and what is being done to fix it.
There was other business on the agenda, but it seemed minor in light of the challenges facing Harford, not to mention many of her neighboring communities in the wake of the Great Flood of 2006. Much of what the Supervisors would have liked to accomplish may be put on hold as the township is forced to drain some of its accumulated resources to pay for the damage. And it isn't getting cheaper.
