A former assistant public works director claims in a federal lawsuit filed Friday that Plum fired him because of an unspecified disability instead of for the job performance issues cited when the council voted, 4-2, to fire him in December 2010.

Alan D. Lyons, 56, of Monroeville claims that the borough fired him after he asked for an accommodation for his disability. Michael Thomas, the borough's manager, said at the time of the council vote that the borough had twice suspended Lyons for failing to follow policies and Lyons had failed to correct his performance deficiencies for more than a year before his firing.

Lyons' lawyer and the borough's solicitor couldn't be reached for comment.
