Mayor Yannuzzi Reacts to Budget
The budget was approved, amended and presented Thursday night, at City Hall. Mayor Yannuzzi said his proposed budget should have been looked over and amended and there’s not enough time to make the changes before the new year. He said the increases in the budget needed a vote of a majority plus one or a four-one vote to be approved. He believes the new budget can’t go into effect. Mayor Yannuzzi said his proposed budget including an 83 percent tax increase won’t be as bad as people think. More importantly he said Hazleton will have it’s fire, police, and streets department.
