Kane plans to use community service workers

Offenders who have been sentenced to perform community service soon will be working on more projects for the borough of Kane.“It’s a win-win situation,” Mike Barnard said Monday in explaining the county community service program. He said the offenders are given the opportunity to complete their community service hours, while the borough will receive “free workers.”Barnard, the McKean County community service coordinator, discussed the program at a meeting of the Kane Borough Council.According to his report, Barnard said “community service is unpaid work by an offender for a civic or non-profit organization” such as the borough.
