Owasco highway superintendent will have official misconduct charge dropped

And just like that the official misconduct charge against an elected Owasco highway superintendent will go away.

Robert Bruno appeared in court on Wednesday to be arraigned on the charge of official misconduct. He left court with an arrangement that will allow him to pay $659 in restitution – and have the charge dismissed, according to The Citizen.

They report that the dismissal comes with the following terms: Bruno will be required to obey all laws, and pay $659 back to the town.

In December, he was arrested by state police for using Town funds to purchase parts of his personally owned equipment. Court documents associated with that investigation show that more than $1,000 worth of parts were purchased.

The charge will be dismissed in July if he complies with the orders.
