Credit card use battle continues

WILKES-BARRE – Sometime today, Jim Hayward will find more answers to his questions about Wilkes-Barre’s credit card use.

As part of an ongoing open-records tug-of-war, the city will provide Mr. Hayward with six credit card statements, one from former city Administrator J.J. Murphy’s account and five from current Administrator Marie McCormick’s account, city attorney Tim Henry said.

LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo.—

A Lee’s Summit investigation is underway as police try to catch a credit card scammer.
