Council sues Stoffa over Gracedale ambulance contract

Council sues Stoffa over Gracedale ambulance contract

Northampton County Executive John Stoffa is facing a lawsuit -- from Northampton County Council!

The lawsuit says Stoffa violated the county's home rule charter by requesting sealed bids for ambulance services for the Gracedale Nursing Home.

The charter says the executive can only do that when price is the sole factor.

Council rejected lower bids from LifeStar in Bethlehem in favor of current provider Nazareth Ambulance.

Stoffa backs Lifestar -- and he says Gracedale and its advisors support it.

Stoffa says he was just following executive privilege to make a wise decision with taxpayers in mind.
