STATE ASKED TO HELP END DEADLOCK IN LACKAWANNA

A Lackawanna School Board member wants the state education commissioner to intervene in the deadlock over making city schools accessible to the handicapped.

Trustee John Makeyenko said the system faces the cutoff of $3 million in federal funds unless it acts soon and called on Commissioner Richard Mills for help.

In a letter scheduled to be delivered today, Makeyenko said the board is deadlocked because Trustees Kenneth Motyka and Edward Piotrowski refuse to approve a new elementary school, even though Piotrowski previously supported the plan.

Makeyenko said he is asking Mills to step in and help reach an agreement.
