Personnel matters dominated the June 22 meeting of the Susquehanna County Commissioners as the county looks to fill several key positions.

As of the Wednesday meeting, the Director of Planning position was still open, but is no longer listed on the county website under the “current employment opportunities” heading.

But positions to be filled include the Deputy Chief Clerk, GIS Technician, Assistant Director of Assessment and Maintenance Specialist, as well as a 2nd Deputy post in the Treasurer/Tax Claim office.

In the meeting, the commissioners accepted the temporary appointment of Macy Rudock, Director of Elections/Voter Registrar, to the position of Acting Deputy Chief Clerk, while retaining her existing post and with no change in salary.

The commissioners also approved the transfer of Kenneth Shoemaker from the position of Processing/Shipping Manager at the recycling center to the salary board’s newly created post of Processing/Shipping Manager/Compacter Operator.

Nathanial Wallace, of Thompson, was hired to the position of EMA Training & Operations Officer, effective June 30, at a salary of $43,107.50, per the recommendation of Scott Aylesworth, Emergency Management Coordinator.

The salary board changed the temporary, annual doe permit processing positions in the Treasurer’s Office to part-time, temporary clerk positions, with no more than 29 hours per week.

In addition to personnel matters, the commissioners also approved an addendum to the contract with iland, of Houston, Texas, to add an additional 5 terabytes of space to the backup repository at an additional cost of $186 per month, per the recommendation of Stephen Janoski, Director of IT/GIS Coordinator.

Service agreements for Children and Youth Department providers were also approved by the board.
