So,let me get the facts straight:
"Labor laws prevent city officials from commenting on personnel issues, but multiple anonymous law-enforcement sources have acknowledged that Snavely was terminated on Monday. The reason for the dismissal still remains a mystery, although Snavely is reportedly challenging his termination by filing a grievance with the police union against the city. That would place him on a suspended status until it is resolved — a process that in past cases has taken several months."

So,why did a County Commissioner share personal information to a citizen of Lebanon County,information that by law should be highly confidential?
Ask yourself these questions.
How did a County Commissioner get the information regarding Kevin's firing?
Why was it "ok" to tell one person,yet not allow the general public access to that same information?
Is it ever acceptable to discuss my dismissal or your dismissal with the public without our permission / consent?
WHO told the county commissioner the details about Kevin Snavely?
Doesn't Lebanon Government have a code of ethics Policy that would bar such personal information,especially in light of the fact that Kevin Snavely is currently on a "Suspended Status".
Oh,what a tangled web we weave...
ANSWERS People!,we want them!

"Labor laws prevent city officials from commenting on personnel issues",

Did I read that correctly?

No "allegation" here - it is a FACT that the ADMINISTRATION of Lebanon's Police Department VIOLATED that labor law because just yesterday a county commissioner was giving the public DETAILS of the firing.

A county commissioner is NOT a part of police administration.

OBVIOUSLY, the administration running Lebanon's Police Department department is not competent enough to manage personnel matters.

Makes perfect sense now why Peggy's murder file is such a challenge... those paid to MANAGE the department and basic personnel files can't handle THAT correctly.

AWE, here's an idea. Since Mr DA doesn't view "THE KILLER" as a threat, even though he has a person in mind, maybe we could save the city some more money, get rid of half the Police Force and have the other half walk around to the druggiies, gangs, and thugs doing eenie meenie minie mo, you're a threat, you're not a threat. Let's ask all the prisoners if they have turned their life around and promise to be good we can let them go, that'll save a bundle and take the burden off the city. No money in the budget? Oh come on, start charging the kids sports programs more money to play and use city fields. Silly us , we were always under the impression Parks were here for the kids and that's why we pay taxes. You now charge Landlords money to have rental property, why not charge the homeowners an association fee to live in the city.Turn the Air conditioners off at the courthouse, go back to the every other light bulb rule. There's alot of ways to save money. And the biggest and best way will come ELECTION DAY......PEGGY SENT US

I'am truley appauled at the firing of officer Snavely,The mayor of the city should be trying to clean up the drugs and all the other corruption that happens in Lebanon,there is not one other officer on the 8th street force that is more dedicated to his work than officer Snavely,I speak from personnal experience,officer Snavely is a dedicated man who gave his all to the force. I guess the mayor would rather have the corruption in his city, instead of solving 40 year old murder cases,the mayor amking the remark that
thi makes the force look bad,,HUH,you Mayor Anspach have done that all by yourself ,the day your fired officer snavely,you just showed Lebanon and the rest of PA, how corruption rules ,Officer snavely never violated any policies,come on you right now haveofficers employed by the city of Lebanon that to have violated a ploicy or two,but oh let me guess, those violations wont expose anything, things such as officers who just sit a the turkey hill all night trying to get dates,yea thats right,DATES,others who purchase stolen sample drugs because they cant function,and I dont mean mind altering drugs, I m talking about drugs to perform,should we say VIAGRA--come on officer viagra you know who you are and you certainly know what Im referring to,thats right and if your a man of honesty and integrety you will expose yourself, we even know where and who you purchased them from but ya know officer viagra you should not be commenting on officer snavely or anyone else for that need to worry about yourself, cause who knows,after all the city also employs officers who were suspended(mind you) for DUI,and eluding an officer in pursuit,yea you read that right,and guess what, this officer has his job back, now I ask all you kind people in the city of Lebanon, how do you feel having an officer of that sort protecting your city,all in all it just goes to show who is and isnt doing their job,I need not mention any names, or should I. well I guess not since you all know who you are
Officer Kevin Snavely needs to be put back to work to clean house in Lebanon City, and that he can do, after election time, all you people, and you know who you are, will be standing in the unemployment line,I say KUDOS to Officer Snavely,you have nothing to be ashamed of ,you can walk the streets of Lebanon and hold your head high,for you are a man of honest integrety and loyalty to the people of Lebanon and any police force would be honored to have you as part of their team,but as a citizen of lebanon, I know I speak for others, we will be proud to see your serving our community,come on Lebanon City, I say goodbye Mayor Anspach, and say hello to our new Mayor Of Lebanon City,Kevin SNAVELY, an honorable man who will truley clean out corruption and make Lebanon a place to be proud of
