CONSHOHOCKEN Conshohocken officials on Friday fired the borough manager, a longtime employee who also served as finance director.
Francis Marabella had worked for Conshohocken for more than eight years, Councilman Robert Stokley said. But in recent months the council members began considering that the borough's operations and finances might be more efficiently managed by two people, not one.
"It's a lot of work, holding those two positions," said Stokley, who indicated that the council decided several weeks ago to terminate Marabella. "We feel it was a little too much for him." Marabella, who became borough manager in 2006, did not return a call for comment.
