Department of Community, Economic Development supports injunction stopping payments to Herm Suplizio


DUBOIS — The Department of Community and Economic Development is supporting the court injunction prohibiting the DuBois City government from making payments to suspended City Manager Herm Suplizio.

A letter expressing that support was sent from the department to the DuBois City Council on Tuesday.

Clearfield County Judge Frederic Ammerman granted an emergency injunction last week ordering that no payments, pension distributions, or payouts be made to Suplizio, and no agreements can be formed between the city and Suplizio.

City officials and a group of DuBois residents are scheduled to be in Clearfield County Court Wednesday morning regarding the permanency of the injunction.

Meanwhile, DuBois area District Justice Dave Meholick has recused himself from any future hearings involving suspended DuBois City Manager Herm Suplizio.

Meholick announced his recusal decision last Friday.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office has said that additional charges are likely to be filed against Suplizio after Labor Day.

A senior magistrate from outside of the area will then likely be assigned to the case.

Suplizio has been charged with making more than $600,000 in fraudulent transactions while he was city manager.
