Education

Northern Pennsylvania Regional College (NPRC)

300 Second Avenue Redevelopment LogoOne of the biggest stories of 2017-2018 was the securing of the (NPRC) Northern Pennsylvania Regional College’s administrative offices in Warren County. This new university, created by the state legislature is a cutting-edge program which has come to Warren County.

Commissioner Eggleston, along with other community leaders, pitched Warren County on its merits and (out of nine proposed counties) was selected to house the base for the university. This represents the first major investment in post-secondary education in Warren County by the state of Pennsylvania in over 40 years. The College brings a $1 million payroll to the County and has created dozens of jobs.

The Commissioner also pushed for $100,000 in matching funds to be allocated for the home offices which brought down over $1.6 million in additional grant funding from the state and regional foundations to redevelop the former PNC Bank building on Liberty Street, making it a viable office space for years to come and saving it from becoming blighted.

Community Development
Expanded Benches on Bike/Hike Trail —Worked with Boy Scouts to purchase and install new artisanal concrete benches on the trail (using Act 13 funds) in response to calls from citizens.

Career Center Partnership — Worked with Career Center Construction Programs to allow municipalities to request small construction projects for recreational uses to be funded via Act 13 funds and built by Career Center students.

DAV (Disabled American Veterans) — To help DAV volunteer drivers deal with weather and eliminate snow removal, Eggleston secured funding for carports for all DAV vehicles.

Human Services
Bollinger Enterprises Inc. (BEi) — Worked with County staff and Bollinger Chief Executive, Dr. Bill Clark, to create a program, in County facilities allowing persons with disabilities to work during the day cleaning and performing other duties while accommodating new state regulations to further integrate them into the workforce.

Human Services Summit — Initiated first “Summit” of all Human Services providers and interested parties. After four days of work by over 40 individuals, the group produced an 80+ page report which is being used to positively reshape Human Services in Warren County.

Ruth Smith Center Additional Funding — The Center in Sheffield, which provides a place for persons with disabilities to live and receive care in the County, was having troubles with being underfunded by the State. Commissioner Eggleston worked with the Director of DHS and other staff to find funding solutions which allowed the Ruth Smith to continue providing their valuable services to the community.

Mental Health Awareness Month — Helped initiate (through Systems of Care) a “Build a Tree” program where students and supportive businesses would build a tree as an art project and find ways to share their thoughts and ideas on Mental Health. The Commissioner built a website (http://growingstrong.info/) that outlined the project and promoted Mental Health Awareness. With the participation of the School District, Head Start, Beacon Light, and other organizations, a huge plethora of artwork was created and then showcased at the “Mental Health Symposium” at the end of the month.

Marketing & Development

Marketing Task Force — Eggleston pulled together thought leaders in the community to produce a 90+ page report with dozens of recommendations on how to better market and promote Warren County. Both this report and the Redevelopment Report will be incorporated into the County’s comprehensive plan and save the County tens of thousands of dollars in consultant fees next year.

Redevelopment Task Force — In order to address blighted property and commercial property redevelopment, Commissioner Eggleston initiated a task force to review key redevelopment areas and produce recommendations. After months of work, the group has produce a 76 page report with detailed project recommendations to reshape Warren County.

Environmental Advocacy
Allegheny River Cleanup — Attended and supported the ARC, helping to gather debris. Also pushed for County Act 13 funds to support the River Cleanup financially.

Recycling Program — Toured and worked in multiple regional recycling facilities to gather information. Also secured a $50,000 grant from DEP to work with a recycling consultant on a County comprehensive recycling program.

Tech Upgrades
Website Update — Commissioner Eggleston personally rebuilt the County’s website, saving taxpayers an estimated $10,000 in development costs, which increased traffic and accessibility.

Assessment Data Online — Worked with Assessment Department to put all County Assessment data online, free of charge, so citizens can track their property data without having to go to the Courthouse and pay for printouts.

Website Award — The county website won the County Commissioners Association Award for “Excellence in Websites” in the State of Pennsylvania.

Fiscal Software — Through the Commissioners support for the EIP program, the county is receiving a $75,000 grant for new fiscal software which will allow the administration to better manage the County’s finances.

Increased Online Access — The Commissioner installed numerous online forms which allow citizens to more easily make open records requests and receive information.

Commissioners Videos — Began recording meetings using an iPhone and published public meetings online for citizens to watch who are unable to attend meetings.

Second-Term Goals

Smart Government/Fiscal Responsibility

We have limited resources and need to use them wisely, to make smart investments for the future. My plan involves getting the greatest return on whatever investments we make through planning and comprehensive planning.

  • Continue to hold the line on taxes and spending, while making smart investments for the future.
  • Collaborate with the municipalities in the County to reduce costs, streamline services, and make the best use of limited resources.
  • Pushing Harrisburg and Washington D.C. for more investment in Warren County.

Redevelopment and Sustainability

Warren County is not only a beautiful place to live but also a safe and healthy place to raise a family. I plan to keep it that way by addressing blight and redevelopment and creating and improving programs to keep our environment clean for future generations.

  • Create a comprehensive recycling and sustainability program which will reduce waste in our forests and rivers.
  • Push for and promote residential and commercial tax incentive programs to help spark redevelopment and growth.
  • Create comprehensive redevelopment initiatives based on the Redevelopment and Marketing Task Force reports.
  • Focus on and support Human Services in Warren County to address our serious mental health and rehabilitation needs.

Pro-Business and Promotion Initiatives

To grow the County, we need to grow local businesses. The time for half measures is over. We need leadership for the future and we need Commissioners who are proactive and engaged with local businesses.

  • Promote tax incentive programs to help our current businesses grow and entice new businesses to come and invest in the community.
  • Work through the Marketing Task Force to expand tourism and promotion to both bring consumers to our area, but also to help businesses recruit skilled workers.
  • Work with Northern Pennsylvania Regional College to build partnerships and retrain our workforce for today’s jobs.
