Schuylkill Commissioners Approve $21K Per Month Contract to Manage Children & Youth Finances

Last week, Schuylkill County Commissioners approved a contract with a company to provide financial management services for Children & Youth Services.

The Commissioners agreed to pay Service Access & Management Inc. $21,000 a month. This deal is on a month-to-month basis.

County officials, of course, didn’t state publicly why this contract is necessary. Details of the contract were not made available.

The move comes just a few weeks after it was revealed one of Children & Youth’s fiscal officers was arrested for stealing more than $20,000 from Coaldale borough through a similar position she held there.

According to the RepublicanHerald newspaper, Anissa Nunemacher was charged with theft for overpaying herself that amount over a period of 4 years.

Again, this is just coincidence, as far as anyone knows.

But the County’s reaction to questions from the paper a few weeks ago makes you think we were asking them. To call officials’ reactions to questions standoffish would be an understatement.

The County hired Nunemacher to start in July as a fiscal officer at Children & Youth. And all the County would do, when asked, is confirm Nunemacher was a county employee.

When the paper called Children & Youth to inquire about Nunemacher, they were told, “No comment. This call is over.”
