WATCH: Schuylkill County Commissioners Meeting on March 13, 2024

Even Boots is now responding to Public Comments.

Watch the full video of Wednesday’s Schuylkill County Commissioners Board Meeting from March 13, 2024.

While the Commissioners buzzed through most of the motions before them, the meeting did feature a bit of breaking news. In it, we learned from Solicitor Paul Datte that the County’s Chief Tax Assessor was relegated to working from home temporarily.

Kent Hatter, the Chief Tax Assessor, has been sued in a federal civil lawsuit by a Jane Doe accuser over comments he allegedly made during a 2021 meeting with her and another woman.

The two women allegedly in that meeting are also part of the 2021 Jane Doe v. Schuylkill County lawsuit against several county officials, including former Commissioner George Halcovage.

Following Wednesday’s meeting, Commissioners Chairman Larry Padora told The Canary that Hatter would remain working from home until “all pertinent information” was collected on the situation.
