Proposals to develop park spark charges of conflict by solicitor When U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy walked into the Dormont council session Monday, all the squabbling stopped.
There had been requests for the firing of solicitor Tom Ayoob from audience members at the council agenda session. Some angry people, convinced that Dormont council had secret meetings with two men who submitted proposals for commercial development of Dormont Park, were upset to learn that one of the developers, Gary Cozza, had been Mr. Ayoob's client.
But everything quieted down when Mr. Murphy came to give council a new American flag that had flown over the U.S. Capitol. He said he had noticed the municipal building needed a new one.
Mr. Murphy said he was pleased he was such a calming influence. But, after he left, the controversy started all over again.

Tim Murphy saves the day. Err, no the minute. Big time flag solution. Menawhile the park and pool efforts still filled with empty promises.
