• Monessen mayor rebuked after being absent from meetings for nearly a year


    MONESSEN, Pa. - The Monessen City Council has rebuked its mayor.

    Mayor Matt Shorraw and Councilman Gilbert Coles haven't attended council meetings in nearly a year.

    Councilman Anthony Orzechowski, who serves as the deputy mayor, has assumed the role of acting mayor until Shorraw beings to attend meetings again.

    "At no time was the mayor, dismissed, removed or anything like that. It was just that type of resolution that you are not here. You are absent," Orzechowski said.
