Wellsboro, the County Seat, was incorporated March 16, 1830 and sits in the geographical center of Tioga County in the lush green valley formed by the intersection of the Kelsey, Morris, and Charleston creeks.
The Borough Office, Fire Department, and Police Station are all located in the John E. Dugan Fire Station Municipal Building, at 28 Crafton Street. All Borough meetings are held in the Council meeting room on the first floor. Monday through Friday office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
A six member Council governs the Borough. The Mayor acts as a tiebreaker for voting purposes and oversees the Police Department.
Borough Council plays an active role in Borough affairs, governing old and creating new legislation for the 3348 residents, and setting the tax rate (currently 6.33 mills). Tax dollars provide for Parks and Recreation, Police Protection, Zoning, Land Use and Subdivisions, a Garbage Collection and Recycling Program, Street and Bridge Maintenance, Street Lighting, and Water/Waste Water Facilities. User fees are also charged, based on consumption, for water, sewer, and garbage usage.
The Borough Manager was hired by the Borough Council to direct the daily operations of the borough. The Manager coordinates and directs the work of the borough departments, prepares an annual budget for Council approval, and implements policy decisions of the Council.
