SUNBURY — Kulpmont Councilmen Robert Slaby and Stephen Bielskie filed legal action Thursday against municipal authority members Bruno Varano and Bernard Novakoski claiming the duo were illegally appointed in 2016 and have refused to relinquish their positions.

In a complaint filed at the Northumberland County Courthouse, Slaby and Bielskie claim Varano and Novakoski’s failure and refusal to vacate positions as members of the Kulpmont-Marion Heights Joint Municipal Authority have kept them from taking their appointed positions.

Bernie nor I have received any notification of this lawsuit as of 9 am. 9/27/2019. Pretty sad you read about in the paper before you're legally served with pending lawsuit paperwork.
