      For her part, Katzenmoyer would only say, “Things were not working out between me and the new administration.”
     This is the latest tidbit added by LNP to their story linked to below. That and the suddenness of it all and the secrecy surrounding it would seem to indicate she was fired.
     Her job and responsibilities for the city were huge so this is extremely important even though LNP thinks their childish review of the Gran Sabor Latino Restaurant (and many other stories) are more important!
     I would also like to thank the commenter who sent in this about Chief of Staff Matt Johnson. It made my day:
     I honestly derive some enjoyment from seeing his posts on the city’s page, due to their ludicrous unprofessionalism.
     I left Matt a voicemail and sent him two nice emails today asking for a statement and have heard nothing back. Surprise! 🙂
There will be much more tomorrow.


***  LNP is finally up with a very short story (click here). From the article:
     Her department oversees the city’s water and wastewater operations as well as street repair, upkeep of parks and public property and so on.
     “And so on?” You’re a reporter! It’s your job to tell us what the “so on” is! Tell the public how much control and power this woman had!



**   For over 12 years (and in Katzenmoyer’s case many more years than that) the above three very powerful and highly paid city employees have controlled and run the city of Lancaster with oversight from absolutely no one except the mayor. Anything they wanted they got (and so did LNP)!   
     Is Katzenmoyer’s departure a huge crack in the corruption and control of the city?

*    I left a voicemail requesting additional information at 8:56 am this morning with Matt Johnson, Mayor Sorace’s Chief of Staff.


       “Charlotte Katzenmoyer is no longer employed by the city of Lancaster,” a city employee who is aware of the situation told me by phone this morning.
Please see yesterday’s posts about the 17 year Director of Public Works and check back for this developing story. What happened?

    Not that she didnt deserve it, but it figures they fired the woman when all three of those clowns you have pictured need to be canned. If this is not part of a larger restructing effort, or she didnt get a hefty severance in return for her silence, (which I doubt), the city should gear up for an age/sex discrimination lawsuit with lots of dirt in it. Expect it to be filed by an out-of-county lawyer…of course.

    I saw that exchange as well as others on both the city page and on neighborhood pages in which he argues in a completely unprofessional manner with city residents.

    I honestly derive some enjoyment from seeing his posts on the city’s page, due to their ludicrous unprofessionalism.

    I doubt matt will get back to you for plenty of reasons. Im sure he knows that if he wants to continue to be chief of staff he needs to continue to cover her behind. You must of missed how much pride he takes in his job on the comment section of a city post. He also comments along with amber on the city of lanc fb page. Both had an interesting conversation with jai sai on fb. It was a post about the program of hiring officers to help with diversity that btw he is in charge of.

    That’s one I don’t remember much about

    • Becky says:

      Lancaster has spent more than $500,000 since last June in its dispute with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over how it handles sewer overflows — on top of more than $900,000 spent before that — but city officials have encouraging news: They say the process appears to be nearing a satisfactory resolution.
      The agency has provided the city with a draft consent decree that looks “fairly good,” Public Works Director Charlotte Katzenmoyer said.

      Lancaster, EPA reportedly nearing agreement on sewer overflow issue

      Mayor Rick Gray described the agreement as a “sigh of relief” in that environmental regulators have conditionally accepted the city’s approach to ending pollution and given the city time to accomplish it and spread costs out.
      But he noted that higher sewer bills are in store for city residents. “It will be millions of dollars over 20 years,” he said.

    Probably because of all the cars damaged by the drug addicts they hired to paint lines last Sunday. Talked to her assistant who could not have been ruder. Asked for her name and got her resume instead: “Ive been here 38 years blah blah blah.” Tried to act like I was pulling a scam. Got hold of the ins. co for the road crew thru PennD.O.T. – which could not have been nicer. I asked if I was the only car that was damaged and was told no…not at all. You should see the roads, but I cant upload photos here. Yellow paint all over my beautiful car….

    I wonder which recent story we will be learning more about in the days to come.
