WILKES-BARRE – A Mountain Top woman who worked as Nanticoke's city administrator and then was placed on leave after a driving-under-the-influence-related crash waived related charges to county court Tuesday.

Holly Cirko, 39, waived her right to a preliminary hearing, sending charges of DUI and careless driving to county court. A third charge of accidental damage to an unattended vehicle or building was withdrawn.

Cirko will appear for a formal arraignment in county court on Jan. 11, according to court records.

Cirko had worked as Nanticoke city's administrator, but was placed on paid leave after crashing her car into a wall at about 3 a.m. on June 26.

Her last day of employment with the city was Aug. 3.

Police said Cirko was driving a Volkswagen Jetta that struck a retaining wall outside the 24-hour Coco Hut Convenience Mart in Nanticoke.

According to police, after hitting the wall, Cirko got out of her car, and went into the store.

She then got back into her car and drove away. Cirko was located a short time later by police.
