According to Finnigan, there will be increases in the annual payment to the Bethlehem Area Public Library, as a result of an increased population. U.S. Census figures show that the number of residents has increased 13.6%, from 9,563 in 2000 to 10,866 in 2010.
Finnigan stated that the budget will also depend on the cost of the police protection provided by Colonial Regional Police.
