Harrington manager suspended; council orders investigation into allegations

DOVER — Harrington City Council voted to suspend City Manager Don Williams Tuesday while an investigation into alleged criminal and civil misconduct takes place. Mayor Anthony Moyer also will temporarily step away from his duties due to similar allegations.

It was not immediately clear who would conduct the investigation and whether the suspension would be paid or unpaid.

Harrington Police Chief Norman Barlow, who will serve as acting city manager during Mr. Williams’ suspension, said after the meeting he will have to determine what law enforcement agency will handle the probe.

Former Harrington planner Jeremy Rothwell, who worked for the city from December 2016 through June of this year, last week urged City Council to conduct an investigation into alleged wrongdoing by Mr. Williams and Mr. Moyer. He accused Mr. Williams of time theft, bending city rules for personal gain and improperly firing an employee and Mr. Moyer of using his office for personal gain, failing to follow city ordinances and bullying city employees.
