Pike County, PA communities get right to work in New Year

By Sharon E. Siegel


PIKE COUNTY, PA -- Copied from Pike County Commissioner's web page and from Milford Borough and Matamoras Borough web pages is information below about the duties and makeup of these boards.


I attended the Swearing in of some of the officials of Pike and PA boards on Tuesday, January 2 at Pike County courthouse. I am including a small number of photos of the many leaders who were sworn in Tuesday morning, and represented many of the towns and communities in Pike County in completing Oaths of Office.


We wish all of our local leaders and boards throughout the entire Tri=State region and beyond the best of luck in this New Year of 2024,


Pike County Board of Commissioners


Under Pennsylvania County Code, the Board of Commissioners is responsible for implementing the County's budget as well as overseeing contracts and expenditures. The Commissioners are the executive governing body for the administration of County programs, personnel, property, and facilities in order to provide the highest level of service to the citizens of the County, while also maintaining vigilance with taxpayer dollars. The three County Commissioners constitute the chief governing body of the County. The Commissioners are vested with the policy-making authority to provide certain local services and facilities on a county-wide basis.


Administrative powers and duties of the County Commissioners encompass registration and elections, assessment of property, human services, veterans' affairs, 911, emergency services, operation of a county prison, personnel management, operation and maintenance of county bridges, appointment of county personnel, and budget and finance management. The commissioners are the sole contractors for the county; as such, they make contracts and purchases for all purposes expressly or implicitly authorized by law. The position of commissioner is a county-wide elected office with a term of four years. The County Commissioners sit jointly as members of the Retirement Board, Salary Board, Board of Assessment and Revision of Taxes, Election Board, and the Prison Board.
