How to Destroy Employee Morale - Easton Won't Pay Funeral Bill For Cop Slain on Duty
Easton's a walking contradiction. It's citizens are bright and concerned, but they constantly elect leaders whose attitude, at best, is parochial. Example? Motivated citizens went all out recently to preserve the Eddyside pool, raising over $3,000. Simultaneously, its city council rejected the funeral bill for a police officer tragically slain on duty, worried that payment might "set a precedent." Yeah, I can see that happening every day. The bill was inflated because all the pols had to get in on the action, and now they won't pay the tab.
