03 - 14 - 2014 Lewistown Borough Council being sued by MCRP over pensions
[LS] - Lewistown Borough Council is being sued for claims that pension money is still owed to the MCRPD. The attorney for the MCRP, Bob Mix, was asked by the Lewistown Sentinel how much money they were talking about. Mix declined to specify other than to say that "It is a substantial amount." MCRPD Board President John E. McCullough told the press that the amount of money is not negotiable, saying it is money owed. He also said the board had no other recourse other than to take civil action, even though they had hoped this action could be avoided. Lewistown Borough Council President Russ Rager declined to comment about the suit because he felt it would be inappropriate.
