In July of 2013 the Northumberland County Commissioner’s received a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection through the Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority (PEDA) to assist the Commissioner’s in converting and upgrading the heating system at its historic Courthouse.

(June 06, 2014) The Northumberland County Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts wants to warn the public about a computer virus that comes in an email falsely claiming to be about a court case. The Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts has learned the email alerts recipients about an upcoming court case; however, the email is a scam, and opening any attachment or clicking on any link in the message triggers a malicious program that infects the recipient’s computer. The email is not from the courts nor is it about a court case.
