Solid Waste Authority looks toward Clearfield County for a lifeline

February 24, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Jefferson County Solid Waste Authority has looked toward the state legislature for solutions to funding issues for the past several years. Now, it appears a different answer may be playing out in Clearfield County.

The authority has been losing funds since an administration fee was removed following a court case. This year, the authority needed more than $20,000 from reserve accounts to balance the operating budget. Each year, the authority asks the state to renew the administration fee, but no action has been taken.

Commission addresses concerns about tax notices

February 24, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Jefferson County Commissioners Tuesday addressed changes to tax notices this year.

Commission Chairman Paul Corbin said changes to the tax notice have caused some confusion among residents.

He said the new tax notices are only a single page rather than two, and they are mailed directly to taxpayers’ homes.

“The envelopes say, very noticeably, ‘Important tax information enclosed,’” Corbin said, adding that two tax notices will be sent out, one for property tax and one for occupational tax.
