LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (WIVB) — The City of Lackawanna’s assessor has been fired from her job.

According to the Office of Mayor Annette Iafallo, former assessor Debbie Skulski-Wakelam, “was discharged from her duties for actions unbecoming of a city officer,” two weeks ago. News 4 reached out to the mayor’s office for more information.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the mayor says Skulski-Wakelam was discharged from her position on May 7. The statement also says that because this is a personnel matter, the city will not have any further comment.
