    The Trustees Insurance Fund, through PSATS, is offering a webinar to provide an introduction to our 457 Plan and help your township officials determine if this is a valuable benefit to offer to the employees.  This benefit can be offered to both full-time and part-time employees for a nominal annual administrative fee.  The Plan can be set-up for “employee-only” contributions and includes a Roth feature that allows for post-tax contributions.  Participants can choose either the Roth or traditional “pre-tax” option – or use a combination of the two.  Also, participants in the plan can choose from a wide variety of investment options and enjoy the flexibility of managing their own retirement account.  Township officials can offer this Plan as an “employee-only” contribution and pass the low annual administrative fee costs on to the employees, making the plan a “no-cost” retirement benefit for your township.

    This will be an interactive Webinar; participants will be able to submit questions to the presenter, who will answer them for the entire group.

  • Developing Your Township Budget - 8/28/19 - Clarion Co.

    Contains 3 Component(s), 2 credits offered

    Preparation and adoption of the annual budget should be based on careful planning of the township’s activities for the coming year, and making reasoned and balanced decisions on how municipal resources will be spent. This class will provide proven and effective methods and techniques to help new and veteran township supervisors, secretaries, treasurers, managers, road masters and public works officials develop budgets that work.

    The township’s annual budget is a financial plan that shows how much money your township will have, where it comes from, and how it will be used. Section 3202 of the Township Code requires the board of supervisors to prepare and adopt a budget that best reflects the estimated revenues and expenses of the township for the upcoming year by December 31st.

    Budgeting is a basic tool for managing municipal finances, but it can be more than that. Preparation and adoption of the annual budget should be based on careful planning of the township’s activities for the coming year, and making reasoned and balanced decisions on how municipal resources will be spent.

    The budgeting process should allow the board of supervisors to express its goals for community services for the coming year in a single document that is readily understandable by the citizens. Since the budget allocates revenues among various municipal needs, careful consideration should be given by the board regarding where the limited amount of money available will be spent.

Section 3202 of the Township Code requires the board of supervisors to prepare and adopt a budget that best reflects the estimated revenues and expenses of the township for the upcoming year by December 31st.

    Budgeting is a basic tool for managing municipal finances, but it can be more than that. Preparation and adoption of the annual budget should be based on careful planning of the township’s activities for the coming year, and making reasoned and balanced decisions on how municipal resources will be spent.

    The budgeting process should allow the board of supervisors to express its goals for community services for the coming year in a single document that is readily understandable by the citizens. Since the budget allocates revenues among various municipal needs, careful consideration should be given by the board regarding where the limited amount of money available will be spent.

    This class will provide proven and effective methods and techniques to help new and veteran township supervisors, secretaries, treasurers, managers, road masters and public works officials develop budgets that work.

    This course is eligible for 2 PMGA Administration Primary credits (or secondary credits if enrolled in a different track).

  • Webinar - Creating an Affordable Retirement Plan - 8/8/19 (MEMBERS ONLY)

    The Trustees Insurance Fund, through PSATS, is offering a webinar to provide an introduction to our 457 Plan and help your township officials determine if this is a valuable benefit to offer to the employees. This benefit can be offered to both full-time and part-time employees for a nominal annual administrative fee.

    The Trustees Insurance Fund, through PSATS, is offering a webinar to provide an introduction to our 457 Plan and help your township officials determine if this is a valuable benefit to offer to the employees.  This benefit can be offered to both full-time and part-time employees for a nominal annual administrative fee.  The Plan can be set-up for “employee-only” contributions and includes a Roth feature that allows for post-tax contributions.  Participants can choose either the Roth or traditional “pre-tax” option – or use a combination of the two.  Also, participants in the plan can choose from a wide variety of investment options and enjoy the flexibility of managing their own retirement account.  Township officials can offer this Plan as an “employee-only” contribution and pass the low annual administrative fee costs on to the employees, making the plan a “no-cost” retirement benefit for your township.

    This will be an interactive Webinar; participants will be able to submit questions to the presenter, who will answer them for the entire group.

  • Webinar - Electronic Records Management and the Municipal PDF/A Policy - 7/17/19

    Contains 4 Component(s), 1 credit offered Includes a Live Event on 07/17/2019 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

    The Pennsylvania State Archives announced earlier this year that municipalities are now able to keep permanent records exclusively in electronic form (no paper or microfilm copy required!). But this policy change does have several requirements, most notably that permanent electronic records must be kept in PDF/A format. What does this mean for your municipality and its record keeping responsibilities? Join archivist Tyler Stump and learn about the new policy and how electronic recordkeeping requirements are changing. Stump will also be discussing electronic records best practices that can help your township effectively and efficiently store its electronic records.

  • Webinar - Planning for Private Water Supplies - 7/10/19

    Contains 4 Component(s), 1 credit offered Includes a Live Event on 07/10/2019 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

    Private water wells and springs are vital to Pennsylvania’s rural water infrastructure, which provides drinking water to approximately 3 million residents and farms. Because Pennsylvania lacks state regulations covering private water supplies, their proper management becomes the voluntary responsibility of homeowners who often lack a proper understanding of how they should be managed. In this webinar, Peter Wulfhorst with Penn State Extension will review results obtained from over 30 years of research and outreach, help municipal officials understand how they can help ensure the viability of private drinking water supplies, and provide available resources for municipalities and homeowners.

  • Webinar - Changing a Culture: How to Get Your Delinquents to Recognize their Obligations - 6/19/19

    Contains 4 Component(s), 1 credit offered Includes a Live Event on 06/19/2019 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

    There are numerous reasons that a property owner does not pay municipal charges. Sometimes, the reason is because a property owner has made a conscious and unilateral decision to delay payment. This payment behavior is unlikely to change without the creation of incentives for payment. Through the use of both positive and negative incentives, Townships can encourage property owners to not only pay their delinquent real estate tax and municipal fee bills, but to pay their future obligations on time. This webinar will discuss billing and collection strategies that Townships can employ to enhance the collection of delinquent accounts and create incentives to increase their current collection rates going forward.

  • CDL - Probable Cause Training for CDL Supervisory Personnel - 6/13/19 - Luzerne County

    Contains 3 Component(s), 3 credits offered

    This workshop addresses these federal requirements by providing supervisory personnel with a working understanding of the federal CDL regulations, including on-the-job probable cause procedures.

    FEDERALLY REQUIRED CDL TRAINING

    “Probable Cause Training for CDL Supervisory Personnel”: 

                    State and federal regulations require every employer who has CDL employees driving vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating or operating weight of more than 26,001 pounds used on public roads to participate in a drug and alcohol testing program. These same regulations also require that such employers train all personnel who supervisor employees with commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) in handling suspected on-the-job drug or alcohol use. This workshop addresses these federal requirements by providing supervisory personnel with a working understanding of the federal CDL regulations, including on-the-job probable cause procedures. In addition to those supervisory personnel required to attend, all township CDL employees should attend this workshop to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding this important public safety training.

                    Participants will learn what to do if they suspect or verify that a CDL employee is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol while on duty. Each attendee will receive a comprehensive student handout packet containing relevant instructional material. Each participant who completes the workshop will receive a certificate of attendance at supervisory personnel training for permanent retention in their employer's files. This training is required at least once for all personnel who have any supervisory responsibilities for CDL employees. All your CDL and CMV employees will benefit from attending this workshop.

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Event on 05/29/2019 at 9:45 AM (EDT)

    Does your township have shopping areas and office parks with underutilized parking areas? In Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, drone flights over parking lots show many shopping areas and office parks are underparked, even during peak hours. While parking minimums have been standard practice in the planning world for decades, little research has been used to calculate the number of spaces actually needed per land use. This webinar will provide a review of parking requirements in general, the drone imagery collection process used by Susquehanna Township, examples of trends and changes in parking requirements, and suggestions for potential updates to your parking ordinances.
