Employee honored

Bellevue’s former public works supervisor, who resigned effective Tuesday, was honored at the council meeting that night with a proclamation presented by Mayor George Doscher.

The proclamation credited Tony Barbarino with 16 years of “outstanding efforts” with the borough’s DPW.

Council members echoed the mayor’s sentiments and wished Barbarino luck in his new job.

Barbarino resigned his job after discovering that some council members were investigating and suspected him of taking paid comp time even though he is a salaried department head. Barbarino maintained that he was authorized to take the time off.
