The Magnolia Council last night unanimously accepted the resignation of borough tax collector Maria Capuzzi. Capuzzi said in a letter received by the council Tuesday that she wanted her resignation retroactive to March 19. She did not give a reason in her letter for quitting, but she had been under fire from the council. Contacted at her home after last night's meeting, Capuzzi declined to comment on her resignation. Last month, Capuzzi said she had not been to work since the middle of February and had failed to attend three council meetings called especially to discuss her job performance and alleged record-keeping problems in the tax collection office because of "nervous tension, stress and pressure" related to her job. At that time, Mayor Catherine M. Quigley said Capuzzi had continued to use a record-keeping method that the council twice last year asked her to change.

The petition revived questions about her resignation, which many township observers said they believed had been forced by John Toal, a member of the library board of trustees.

Talk about storm damage. What started as a leaky roof at a Norristown house in February ended this week with the resignation of the borough's code-enforcement officer and embarrassment for the local district judge who, it turned out, had illegally rented the building. Joseph Januzelli, Norristown's code officer since 2008, was forced to resign, town officials say, after an internal review found he failed to make sure the 81-year-old renter's house was up to code. Januzelli came under scrutiny after Ilene Schwartz told municipal council members that her landlord, District Justice Francis Lawrence, was slow to fix her roof after it was damaged in an ice storm.
