Harrisburg's recovery plan goes before City Council tonight

  • 0

HARRISBURG - With Pennsylvania's capital facing the possibility of running short of money soon, a recovery plan written by Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson doesn't appear to have the City Council's support.

Thompson's plan to be considered at Wednesday night's council meeting revolves around efforts to pay down about $300 million in debt tied to Harrisburg's trash incinerator. Critics say it's nearly identical to a state task force's plan that the council rejected in July.

Meanwhile, the mayor is trying to scrounge millions to make payroll and a general obligation bond payment due in September, and Gov. Tom Corbett is warning about a state takeover of Harrisburg.

However, a spokesman for state House Republicans says they have no plans to advance a bill that would create a management board to oversee Harrisburg's finances.
