MARCELLUS, N.Y. -- Tempers flared in Marcellus Thursday night as allegations continue to surround the town's highway department.
A town board meeting included shouting matches. One councilman came out of his seat to address an audience member.
Tensions have been running high ever since accusations were made against the highway superintendent Don MacLachlan and the department he runs. Town lawmakers said an investigation was turned over to the Onondaga County Sheriff's department, but so far, no charges have been levied.
MacLachlan's attorney says a secondary HR company has conducted an investigation and he has not been allowed to see the results.
"And it's just unfortunate that he's had to experience months and months of uncertainty and tarnished reputation without any substantiation," said Dan Walch, MacLachlan's attorney.
The town board eventually went into executive session.
Their next meeting is scheduled for October 24th.
