A Susquehanna County man will serve five to 10 years in a state correctional facility for threatening to shoot a Forest City woman last year.
Susquehanna County President Judge Kenneth W. Seamans tacked on an additional one to two years in the state facility on a second charge of simple assault filed against 42-year-old Timothy Kowalski who was also a Forest City resident when the offense occurred.
In addition, Judge Seamans fined Kowalski a total of $1,000 plus $250 for DNA testing and ordered the defendant not to possess or consume alcoholic beverages and not to possess any firearms.
The elaborately complex Act 1 tax-shift law was once again a prominent conversation topic at the February 20 meeting of the Elk Lake School District and Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center school board. At the previous month's meeting, a question had been proposed, regarding the conversion of the District's earned income tax (EIT) to a personal income tax (PIT). This proposed question was advertised for three weeks, and a public hearing held just before the February 20 meeting. During the regular meeting, the questions were approved 5-3 for inclusion on the ballot, with minor alterations in numbers from the original proposition. (There were two questions- one for Susquehanna County and one for Wyoming County, with Wyoming County showing slightly smaller potential real-estate benefits.) The PIT mentioned in this question would be at a rate of 1.20%; the current EIT rate is .50%.
