County promotes dispatcher, pays bills


LOCK HAVEN — Travis Gibiser, a part-time dispatcher trainee at the Clinton County 911 Center, has been transferred to full-time 911 dispatcher, effective April 7.

The move was approved by the Clinton County commissioners on Thursday morning.

“Technically it is a transfer, but it is actually a promotion. Gibiser has completed his training and is now moving to a full-time position,” said county chief clerk Jann Meyers.

His starting salary will be $28,439 (Grade F), with commissioner Paul Conklin noting that the dispatch center still currently has two vacant positions.

A 72” by 42″ by 26″ fire proof concrete safe has also been posted for sale at the county courthouse, with sale going to the highest bidder. The highest bid will be tallied on Wednesday, April 24 and announced at the commissioner’s work session on April 25.

A proposal from Clearair Technologies for an asbestos and lead inspection of the courthouse in the amount of $685 was approved, along with a proposal from Lugg and Coleman Building Contractors, to install three flag poles at the Piper building for $1,640.

Also approved was the transfer of IV-D funds in the amount of $29,294 to the general fund for January 2019 reimbursement of expenses and the payment of county bills in the amount of $263,227.16 for the period ending April 11, 2019.

Bill invoices over $10,000 included:

∫ Payment of $10,416 to Centre County Youth Service Bureau for residential treatment.

∫ Payment of $19,002.55 to Clinton County Children and Youth Services for quarterly reimbursement.

∫ Payment of $14,900 to ESRI Inc. for software maintenance.

∫ Payment of $10,860.60 to Intertech Security LLC for 2017A capital projects for the Clinton County Correctional Facility.

∫ Payment of $104,828.71 to M&T Bank for FICA Taxes as a result of payroll.

∫ Payment of $13,569.63 to M&T Bank for PA State Tax.

County commissioner Paul Conklin commended Warden Angela Hoover and the staff at the Clinton County Correctional Facility for coming over a half of a million dollars under budget for the fiscal year of 2018.

“The prison is doing a remarkable job with their operation, and bringing in revenue through per diems. It is really humming along well down there and we are starting to see that now,” Conklin said. “The warden is bubbly about it and she should be, because they are working hard down there.”
