Lehigh County residents got mostly good news from Lehigh County Executive Tom Muller Aug. 31 when he unveiled his Lehigh County budget proposal with no tax increase for 2018.
Muller presented his fiscal plan at Cedarbrook nursing home, which is owned by the county. A small crowd, comprised mostly of county staff, politicians, local township officials and residents of the nursing home, attended.
This would be the fourth consecutive year the current administration has delivered a proposed budget with no tax increase, according to Muller.
The Catasauqua Area School Board recently approved a number of staff and extracurricular positions.
On Aug. 25, the Borough of Catasauqua released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the acquisition and mixed-use development of a 10.6-acre property in downtown Catasauqua, known as the Iron Works.
The borough purchased the site through a series of transactions from 2013 to 2016 with the intent to use a small portion for the construction of a new municipal building and to facilitate the redevelopment of the rest. The borough recently completed construction of the new municipal building and is now seeking proposals from firms interested in developing the rest of the site.
