Susquehanna Bancshares could lay off 35

Susquehanna Bancshares Inc. is warning state officials that it could lay off as many as 35 employees at Maryland locations starting in mid-February, but it hopes workers in disappearing jobs will be able to switch to other positions in the company.

The Pennsylvania-based parent of Susquehanna Bank said Tuesday that it expected to complete its acquisition of Tower Bancorp Inc. in mid-February and would need to consolidate locations. But Susquehanna spokesman Stephen Trapnell said employees in the targeted sites — branches and offices largely in Western Maryland but also in Baltimore, Carroll and Harford counties — would be able to apply for other jobs.

"We're hopeful to be able to retain as many people as we can," he said. "There are a couple hundred openings across the company."
