NorCo Council to Discuss Payhikes
When Northampton County Council meets this evening, they are going to bring up three subjects. First, they will certainly discuss Solicitor Phil Lauer's ruling about payraises given to top officials without their approval. Second, they still have questions about Deputy Director of Administration Cathy Allen's contention that the County budgeted for the payraises to clerical staff. That was news to most members of Council. Finally, they want answers about what progress has been made in the state's bridge-budling program. Council member Bob Werner wanted to discuss this two weeks ago. Cathy Allen told Werner that Public Works staff were unable to appear. The truth is they were never notified. When Werner wanted to question Allen about this, she clammed up and refused to answer him.
