Salary Board Tables Promotion
The Susquehanna County Salary Board last week tabled action on a motion that would have given its voter registrar a promotion plus an annual salary of $24,500 that reflects a weekly pay increase of $83.
Commissioner Jeff Loomis, who made the motion to change the job status of Laura Watts from voter registrar to voter registrar/director of elections, cast the lone vote against Commissioner Roberta Kelly’s motion to table the matter. Kelly said she had not been apprised of the motion until shortly before the meeting and she would like time to look into it. She also expressed concern about a pending lawsuit filed against the county by a veteran who applied for the position and was rejected.
State Sues Over Land Dispute
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission last week filed suit against Nicholas Demaree of Brackney urging the court to order Demaree to remove fencing that the state alleges blocks the commission and the public from gaining access to state-owned land at Quaker Lake in Silver Lake Township.
At the same time the complaint was filed in the Susquehanna County Prothonotary’s Office, the plaintiff’s attorney, Michael Giangrieco, filed a petition for a preliminary injunction. An injunction could allow the state access to the waterfront property it owns on Quaker Lake while the lawsuit is argued in the courts.
