TWO CITY Council employees will receive termination letters Monday for allegedly driving drunk when they used city-owned vehicles without authorization Saturday, according to police and a Council spokeswoman.
It hasn't been a good summer for City Council staffers. In July, a City Council employee was arrested for allegedly stealing Social Security checks from an elderly woman.
In Saturday's incident, Council receptionist Robin Jones, 50, was allegedly driving a city-owned 2008 Chevy Cobalt about 2:30 a.m. when she lost control of the vehicle and hit a building at 13th and Hamilton streets in Center City, police said.
Jones told responding officers that she crashed into the building when she swerved to avoid hitting a bicyclist, according to police. However, cops on scene believed her to be driving under the influence of intoxicants and charged her with DUI, police said.
