Koplinski optimistic Papenfuse will work with City Council

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski says he thinks Mayor Eric Papenfuse can work with Council and get things done that will help move the city forward.

"That means constant discussion," said Koplinski.  "That means when a project comes around, that means the mayor comes to council to discuss it before presenting it."

Koplinski said Mayor Papenfuse was dealt a much better hand than the previous administration, and he believes the new mayor will take advantage of the opportunity to build on the momentum that was created with the incinerator debt being wiped off the books.

Mayor Papenfuse says he will announce the new members of his administration on Tuesday. He plans on meeting with Attorney General Kathleen Kane in the near future to discuss many issues including the possibility of conducting a forensic audit on the Harrisburg School District's financial situation.
