CURWENSVILLE---Curwensville is slowly climbing out of debt after what Council President Mark Curulla calls years of financial mismanagement. He said the borough hasn’t spent money on things that should be a priority, such as bringing new industry to the area. He also said if he and the borough secretary hadn’t revamped the financial situation, Curwensville would be bankrupt. Curulla initiated changes after a bank account was discovered last year containing $150,000 of borough money that nobody seemed to know about. Now he checks the books daily, signs every check, and approves every bill. The heavy snow this winter has slowed their financial recovery because of extra money needed for snow removal and overtime for road crews.
