What Makes a Successful County Association

County associations have been celebrating centennial anniversaries in recent years. Find out what makes these organizations tick and why they have survived — and thrived — for more than 100 years.

Fixing the PA One Call Law

With the death last year of an Armstrong County bulldozer operator who hit an unmarked “class one” natural gas gathering line, a loophole in Pennsylvania’s One Call Law was brought to light. To protect workers and prevent further tragedies, advocates are seeking legislation that will close this treacherous gap in the state’s pipeline safety system.

Remembering Jack Walter

The PSATS family lost one of its own with the passing of former President and Trustee Jack Walter in May. A supervisor in Athens Township, Bradford County, Jack was equally committed to serving his township, his county, and PSATS. He leaves behind a legacy of leadership and a legion of friends and colleagues who admired and respected him.
