Srcranton Times-Tribune: Without leader Throop has no one to pay bills

Without leader Throop has no one to pay bills

THROOP — Right now it seems no one wants to hold the reins in borough government.

In the past few weeks, both Council President Daryl Menichetti and Vice President Cindy Johnson have surrendered their leadership positions, citing conflicting opinions of the state of the borough’s finances with manager Robert Hegedus.

In the meantime, it’s unclear who will step up and take charge in this politically divided borough until a new majority voting bloc takes over in January.

Paychecks to borough employees must be signed off on by either the president of council or the vice president.

“Something has to be done. You can’t have these bills not being paid,” Mayor Stan Lukowski said.

Councilwoman Susan Shortz, — who sits on the majority voting bloc of Council with Ms. Menichetti, Ms. Johnson and Councilman George Marushock — said she’s not interested in assuming a leadership position. Efforts to reach Mr. Marushock were unsuccessful.
