SCRANTON -- Scranton City Council is now asking the state auditor general to review the sale of the Scranton Sewer Authority to Pennsylvania American Water, including the sky-high legal fees.

Council members came to that decision Thursday night with a vote of 5-0.

Those who spoke want the review because of concerns too many lawyers were involved and too much money was spent.

Council members also want a better accounting of the upgrades to the system that were paid for by the proceeds from the sale.

    Maybe they should hire the same lawyers to investigate and give them even more money. Bend over tax payers and get ready, they will spend even more money to investigate. Nothing will happen, can only hope for Karma at this point.


    Just like Scranton. Investigate AFTER the sale. Everyone just move out and close that corrupt dump of a city.

    Would this be similar to the police department investigating the police department??

    It’s a done deal, we all know how it’s going to end.
    Does anyone really expect to get money returned.

    We still get the shaft !!
