Swoyersville borough council President Ron Alunni and council member Chris Concert engaged in a heated exchange following the adjournment of a special meeting on Wednesday night.

Alunni questioned Concert’s recent posting on Facebook suggesting that the crime rate in the borough was “through the roof.”

Concert cited several examples of recent incidents, including a break-in at his home.

Alunni countered, saying any increase in the crime rate was not reflected in police records.

Council member Debbie Layaou said her residence had also been illegally entered, and that she had increased concern about crime in the borough.

Alunni also told Concert: “Don’t run for mayor, it will never happen.”

The special meeting preceding the exchange confirmed the appointment of David Latoski as police chief at a annual salary of about $48,000.

The next meeting of Swoyersville council will take place on 6:30. p.m. Monday.
