Schuylkill Commissioners to Consider Firing Children & Youth Fiscal Officer

Meeting Agenda, call-in information available

Schuylkill County Commissioners will once again consider firing an employee at their regular meeting this week.

Among the items on this week’s Agenda is the termination of Children & Youth employee Anissa Nunemacher.

Nunemacher was just hired in June 2021 as a fiscal officer within that County department. However, in November, Schuylkill County District Attorney Mike O’Pake’s office brought theft charges against Nunemacher related to her previous job as part-time Treasurer for Coaldale borough.

Authorities alleged Nunemacher took more than $20,000 from Coaldale in her time at that job, according to reports at that time from Times News.

Last week, Nunemacher agreed to enter the ARD program to have the charges cleared from her record. She’s been suspended from her job with the County government.

Since December 2021, the County has hired Service Access Management at a rate of $21,000 per month to provide financial management services to the Children & Youth department.
