The leader of the Bangor Borough Council is expected to step down in order to focus on another government job.

According to Northampton County officials, Bangor Council President Cathy Allen will submit her resignation so she can focus on her duties as Northampton County's deputy director of administration.

Northampton County Councilman Lamont McClure says it's in the best interest of the public to have Allen focusing on just one government job at a time.
