Easton declares snow emergency through Thursday evening

EASTON, Pa. - A snow emergency is in effect in Easton now through 5 p.m. Thursday, Easton officials announced Wednesday night, meaning no cars can be parked along emergency snow routes in the city.

City council, meeting in an unusually brief session, was introduced to Mark Lysynecky, the city's new director of finance; his salary will be roughly $100,000, annually.

Lysynecky replaces Cassandra Williams, who resigned in November.

Lysynecky, the top candidate out of 92 applicants, formerly worked as chief financial officer of Garden State Growers, a nursery in Hunterdon County, N.J.

In other action, council unanimously passed a resolution introduced by council member Roger Ruggles asking President Trump and other officials to develop a "clear and easily managed pathway" for undocumented immigrants to become U.S. citizens in a timely manner.

Council's resolution was forwarded to cities across the country from Philadelphia to Sacramento, Calif., with the request that each city pass their resolution on to 10 more cities.
