MORRISVILLE Morrisville hired a police chief Tuesday night, ending more than a year of leaderless turmoil during which a temporary chief quit after two weeks and contended the borough was barreling toward "catastrophe or tragedy."
Council members voted to choose Philadelphia Police Lt. George McClay. Contract details were still being worked out, but the position was advertised at $85,000 to $90,000.
McClay will lead the force in the wake of lawsuits filed by one man who contended his fellow officers harassed him and another who filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission alleging a hostile work environment.
