At the Feb. 17 Tarentum Council meeting, a taxpayer asked why a former constable, Tim Dzugan, who is awaiting trial on theft charges, was transferred by the borough from code enforcement to the street department.

Tim Rapp, who despite being charged recently with stealing from his employer remains council president, would not comment. The new borough solicitor, David Regoli, stated that personnel matters like Dzugan's are not discussed at public meetings.

The condescending arrogance of certain Tarentum officials and employees and their blatant dismissal of taxpayer concerns should not be tolerated. A reminder to all: The taxpayers fund all salaries and wages.

Have questionable practices and disrespect and apathy for “the little guy” become the rule of law in Tarentum? Sadly, it seems so.
