TOWANDA – Due to the Independence Day holiday, Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) will hold satellite office hours in Sullivan County on Wednesday, July 18, the third Wednesday of the month, from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Pickett will have staff available at the Sullivan County Commissioners Office in the courthouse in Laporte to help with such items as Property Tax/Rent Rebate or PACE/PACENET applications. The staff also will have available common brochures on state programs and services, and be able to assist with direct inquiries to state agencies.
“The Property Tax/Rent Rebate program has extended its deadline to Dec. 31, so I encourage anyone who needs assistance with the form to stop by for in-person help at the satellite location,” Pickett said. “We encourage residents doing so to make sure to bring along all relevant paperwork.”
Residents of Susquehanna County can call Pickett’s staff at (570) 934-2557 anytime during regular business hours.
