NorCo 2017 Budget Increase Percentage Among Top Three in State
Though Mifflin and Indiana County had the highest percentage increases, but those are one-time occurrences due to accounting changes (Mifflin) and prison reform compliance (Indiana). I excluded them.
Of the remaining counties, Northampton's 9.79% increased budget is topped only by York (10.16%) and Beaver (13.01%).
Lehigh County's budget increased just 2.59%.
The state average was only 3.33%.
