Lehighton Borough Council has warned the Economic Development Council of Northeastern Pennsylvania that unless it gives more attention to Carbon County, it could find itself losing members. A letter to this effect was written to the EDCNP by Mortimer L. Smedley, Lehighton Borough Manager. Smedley said, "I attribute this to the absence of EDCNP's exposure, assistance, funding, support,and interest in Carbon County."
