Council Reviews 2013 Budget
Local government officials met at Hazleton City Hall Wednesday night to review the 2013 budget proposal, but Hazleton community members said the commotion in the room more closely resembled the circus. President of city council said the work session is set up to help work out problems like the ones brought up on Wednesday. Perry said there are several issues relating to the budget like the 1. 7 million dollar deficit that are hard to talk about when people are pointing the blame on others. Still, Perry believes with helping hands and tight wallets Hazleton can work through a possible tax increase.
