On another matter, Osterberg pitched a November 13 “Economic Summit” hosted by the Pike County Economic Development Authority (EDA). A summit announcement quoted EDA directors chair Kathy Hummel describing the gathering as “the perfect opportunity to share... what we see as a spike in economic activity in the county. New business and new jobs are coming to Pike.” Earlier at the same commissioners’ meeting, Osterberg was named as the county’s representative to the Northeastern PA Technical Planning Organization.

The commissioners also announced that Pike’s 2014 budget will be available for public review on December 4, and that the budget will contain no spending increase.
