MARCELLUS, N.Y. -- The town of Marcellus is beginning to see resolution after controversy within the highway department.
In September, allegations of mismanagement were made against the highway superintendent. There were high tempers at two town meetings that prompted investigations by human resources and the Onondaga County Sheriff's Department.
On Thursday, the town meeting was held at the firehouse to accommodate the large crowds. The highway department received recommendations on how to improve the management and productivity. Some of those plans include workplace training, reinforcing the rules, and replacing the time clock.
"Hope to have the full workforce back by November 1. We have to get people to work together. We have some ideas on how to do that both using outside resources and internal," said Dan Ross, Marcellus Town Supervisor. "When it comes right down to it the six guys in the highway department have to be able to work together and that’s what we’re trying to achieve.”
The town supervisor said multiple investigations conducted. Some of the results are still pending.
