Over the past few weeks, It seems tension has grown between Hazleton Mayor Jeff Cusat and City Council.
The most recent city council meeting was held this past Tuesday, March 1.
Hazleton News 1 covered the meeting. They reported that councilman, David Sosar started it by asking how Mayor Cusat's administration came to be hired. The Mayor responded by saying that he himself hired them.
Throughout the night, it appeared that council was continuously attacking Mayor Cusat with hoarse questions relative to the hiring of Cusat's administration.
Earlier this afternoon, I was able to get Cusat's thoughts on the current situation between himself and City Council. He had the following to say:
"I wish that City Council would spend more time on looking for revenue sources and ways to improve the safety of the citizens."
