Courthouse eyed as HR director's office

MEADVILLE — With Crawford County Board of Commissioners looking to hire a human resources director for the county, the next question is where to house the position.

While no formal action has taken place as yet, the county is eying an office within the courthouse in Meadville — possibly where the Crawford County Veterans Services Office now is located.

The county would consider relocating the Veterans Services Office to the county Human Services Department location at the Crawford Business Park in Vernon Township.

The county still is accepting applications for the human resources position through Friday, and then candidates will be selected for first and second interviews, said Jody Marley, the county’s chief financial officer who serves on a county-formed financial advisory committee.

A selected candidate isn’t anticipated to be submitted to county commissioners for approval until some time in the first quarter of 2013.

The county’s human resources functions previously had been part of the chief financial officer’s duties when Robyn Sye was the county’s chief financial officer. Sye left the county’s chief financial officer post at the end of 2011 to take an accounting job with the State Correctional Institution at Cambridge Springs.

A county-formed financial advisory committee that looked at the county’s financial systems and operations recommended the county split its fiscal and human resources functions into separate departments.

The fiscal and human resources operations were separated this past summer with Marley named the county’s chief financial officer. Marley had been the chief financial officer at the county’s Human Services Department.

    V-v-v-v-eroom! is the high-pitched whine from the Honda CBR 600 sport motorcycle as Steven Pilic rolls back the throttle and speeds down the asphalt. In one quick, smooth motion — just like you put one foot in front of the other — he shifts his weight forward on the handlebars, jumps from the bike’s foot pegs, lands his feet on the seat and pulls the 400-plus pounds of metal up onto its back wheel, using a combination of balance, brakes, clutch and speed to circle slowly at first and then faster and faster, tighter and tighter while doing a wheelie.
