HARRISBURG - The state judge who ordered the Harrisburg City Council to double the city's earned-income tax has agreed to defer action.
In an order issued Thursday and made public Friday, Commonwealth Court Judge Bonnie Brigance Leadbetter agreed to reconsider her Aug. 27 order at the request of the city, the council, and the city's state-appointed financial custodian.
Leadbetter said all three parties indicated in a teleconference that they wanted to try again to forge an agreement on how to repair the city's finances. She postponed any action until after oral arguments on the reconsideration motion on Oct. 4. - AP
