HAZLETON – Mayor Jeffrey Cusat’s announcement Thursday of his intent to lay off about 20 city employees on May 8 underscores the deepening rift between his office and the city council.
In a press release, Cusat attributed the layoffs to “the untenable budget passed by city council which mandates the administration to make deep personnel cuts in specified departments.”
Cusat urged residents affected by the layoffs to contact the city council, which he said had refused to cooperate with his office in an effort to make the administration “look bad.”
Cusat said in a phone interview on Sunday that the council had made cuts to line items specific to several departments in its amendments to his proposed 2017 budget, making the layoffs necessary.
According to the release, the layoff would impact employees from the Streets, Building and Maintenance, and Parking departments, as well as garage mechanics and non-uniform police.
Councilwoman Grace Cuozzo takes issue with Cusat’s contention that the layoffs are the fault of council, saying that if the mayor’s office would implement sound fiscal principles with regard to spending, the city would rebound financially in such a way that the average resident would have continued quality services and opportunities for increased income, without the necessity of increasing property tax.
Further, Cuozzo took issue with Cusat’s statement that budget cuts made by council to specific line items made the layoffs necessary.
“For example, we made no cuts to the streets department,” she said.

As two customers were leaving Dino's Restaurant in Willowick on April 19, one stops at another table to share a memory of another visit to the restaurant. After nearly 40 years at 1200 E. 305th St., there are a lot of memories in Dino's tables. "We're told often by people how long they've been coming here and what they remember about it and that comes with a responsibility to keep it as people remember but to keep it new and fresh as well," said Mark Tibaldi, whose family has owned and operated Dino's since the 1950s.
