St. Martin eyed for tax office

Blair County commissioners are in the process of hiring Susan St. Martin as the new director of the tax claim office.

St. Martin, who currently works in the controller’s office, assisted Wednesday with managing the tax claim office’s auction of properties for unpaid taxes, Commissioner Laura Burke said.

Burke and Chief Clerk/County Administrator Nichole Hemminger, who have been staffing the tax claim office since Sept. 13, said Thursday that the sale went well.

The three-person tax claim office has been without a director since late July when Polly Cardone retired. Its two remaining staff members resigned Sept. 10 without advance notice.
