CLARKS SUMMIT -- Two Lackawanna County businessmen have gone to court attempting to halt a referendum question on the November ballot about property reassessment.

Chuck Volpe and Keith Eckel, both of Clarks Summit, filed a court injunction saying that the wording of the question is confusing to voters.

The question asks whether Lackawanna County should borrow money to do a property tax reassessment.

It would be the first reassessment in the county in about 50 years.

A judge will decide if the question will stay on the ballot after a hearing scheduled for next week in Lackawanna County.
