Lehighton borough's former zoning officer is being taken out of retirement.
John Quinn, who had resigned as zoning and property code enforcement office last Nov. 30, was rehired this week by Lehighton Borough Council to work on a part-time basis.
Quinn didn't apply for the job. The council said there are numerous pressing zoning issues in the borough.
The acting zoning officer is borough manager John Wagner, who the council said can use assistance in catching up with pending applications and complaints.
