Honesdale council members found guilty; subpoena for judge quashed
Genello, on the other hand, argued that the fact that the borough council president, F.J. Monaghan, offered Kominsky an opportunity to have the matter discussed in open session or executive session after the initial complaint was discussed in executive session was enough to satisfy the sunshine law.
Langendorder testified that in his position as mayor, he serves as liaison between the council and the police department. He said that he expressed his concern three times that evening that the executive session was improper because Mikulski was not present and did not have a chance to defend himself.
It was noted that Kominski filed his complaint against the council members two days after they chose another person to fill the position of police chief, for which Kominski had applied.
The defendants were found guilty and face fines of $100 plus additional court costs.
