Meeting proposed between Point Township supervisors, county commissioners
NORTHUMBERLAND - Point Township supervisors will seek a meeting with Northumberland County commissioners to resolve their highly publicized differences.
According to The Daily Item, the meeting was proposed during a township meeting Tuesday when Supervisor Montie Peters objected to earlier attacks by Commissioners Vinny Clausi and Stephen Bridy on township officials over the municipality's problems with a housing grant from the state Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). The problems were subsequently resolved.
Peters said Clausi and Bridy attacked Point Township as a way of "getting at" Commissioner Rick Shoch, who is also the township solicitor.
Although Peters and township Supervisor Randy Yoxheimer doubted whether a meeting with Clausi and Bridy would be productive, Supervisor Justin Dunkelberger said it is important that both sides attempt to work out the disagreements. He said a meeting should be scheduled, and the media should be invited also.
