JOHNSONBURG - Criminal charges have been filed in district court against a father and son for their alleged respective roles in arsons perpetrated in Johnsonburg and Ridgway in 2008 and most recently in 2012.
Francis Anthony Milliard, 54, and Anthony Karl Milliard, 28, both of Ridgway, have been charged with multiple counts of felony arson and related offenses, felony criminal conspiracy, criminal mischief, recklessly endangering another person, insurance fraud, and disorderly conduct.
The Elk County Tax Collection Committee met Wednesday at the Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School in Ridgway to further discuss measures involved in replacing Elk County's current earned income tax (EIT) collector following the firm's breach of contract.
CENTAX was contracted to collect and disburse earned income tax monies to Elk County municipalities following the standardization of that state's earned income tax system under Act 32, which mandated one EIT collector per county as well as the formation of county tax collection committees.
