McClure Unveils NorCo's 2020 Budget on Thursday
Lehigh County, which released a $514.6 million budget earlier this month, has proposed a tax hike. It is unknown whether McClure will hold the line.
Under Northampton County's Home Rule Charter, it must be a balanced budget. Proposed expenditures must be no greater than the anticipated funds available.
County Council has until December 16 to adopt or amend the budget. If it fails to do either, McClure's budget will be automatically adopted. County Council can also reject the budget, but that will also mean it is automatically adopted on December 16.
