The Galleria at Split Rock was the site of the County Treasurers Association of Pennsylvania's convention with Carbon County Treasurer Ron Sheehan serving as host convention chairman.
Treasurer Sheehan, the outgoing president of the association, passed his gavel on to the group's incoming President John Gross, treasurer of Cumberland County.
Also present at the convention was Pennsylvania's Secretary of Agriculture George Greig.
"The Department of Agriculture is the official agency that handles dog licenses," Sheehan explained.
He noted that "all county treasurers are agents to the Commonwealth for the issuance of dog licenses in their county."
Secretary Grieg stated, "We're here today to meet with the treasurers and support them in their efforts to increase dog licensing in Pennsylvania."
He noted that "dog license revenues help to fund our bureau for dog law enforcement across the state."
