The Susquehanna County Commissioners apparently will bite the bullet rather than campaign for reelection on the heels of a tax increase.
The proposed $15.3 million budget for 2003 does not call for a tax increase next year but some county projects will be shelved. Moreover, there is no money available to provide a cost of living increment for the 78 former county employees who are participating in the county's pension program.
Meeting as the Retirement Board, along with County Treasurer Cathy Benedict, the commissioners discussed the possibility of providing a 1.7 percent increment for pensioned county employees. However, when Chair Gary Marcho called for a motion, no one would make it and the meeting was adjourned without action. The last increase received by the retirees was three years ago.
Hallstead Boro council met for their last meeting of the year on December 16 with all members present, as well as Secretary Cindy Gillespie and Mayor Willard Canfield.
