York City Council will hold an executive session with the city’s solicitor during the next few weeks to determine whether to push forward with an informational hearing about the issues between the city and the local police union that almost resulted in the firing of two officers.
Council president Carol Hill-Evans said Wednesday night that she expects the session to be held within the next couple of weeks, at which point the members will decide what direction to take.
At the end of last month, city officials publicly acknowledged their intentions to fire officers Michael Davis and Jeremy Mayer, both local police union officials, for what the city characterized as their poor handling of another officer’s accusations of a criminal enterprise within the police department.
The city and the police union reached a settlement that ultimately allowed both officers to stay on the force, but many questions about the allegations made against the department, its investigation of itself, why the city sought action against the two officers and the settlement the city and union came to have been unanswered, council members said Wednesday.
Here is an interesting article about those pesky stink bugs that entered the USA via Allentown back in 1998. They are worse than ever and evidently have no natural predators, however, they HATE the cold. This article from the York Dispatch talks about the temperature spikes effecting them as well as ways to get rid of them.
YorIT, a York County Community Foundation has a Social Venture Fund with $20,000 and is looking for a person or persons with “new, creative, out-of-the-box ideas that can attract retailers and restaurants to the area as well as get more people to come downtown” to give it to.
I seriously think I should move to York! I am continually amazed at the level of cooperation between the city, county and private sector. How refreshing to see that suburbanites get that York City is the heart of York County and are trying to do all in their power to revitalize it!
Around here, it’s the opposite. Most suburbanites do not seem to care if places like Philadelphia, Norristown and Pottstown fail. Many avoid coming into these places at all costs. Very sad.
