June 25, 2018 HARRISBURG — Mayor Eric Papenfuse will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. Monday at the MLKGovernment Center, 10 N. Second St., to declare a state of fiscal crisis following the State Legislature’s passage of a budget that did not include a provision to allow the City of Harrisburg to leave Act 47 with its current taxing authority.

“With the State Legislature’s failure to act Friday to extend Harrisburg’s taxing authority beyond Act 47,” said Mayor Papenfuse, “the City now faces a looming financial catastrophe that will require immediate implementation of austerity measures to begin to close a projected $12 million budget deficit over the next three years.

The Mayor will provide details of plans to address the City’s fiscal state of crisis at the press conference on Monday.

For more information, contact Joyce M. Davis, Director of Communications, City of Harrisburg at 717 255 3015 or at jdavis@harrisburgpa.gov.
