County taxes to increase 3.78 mills

At their Oct. 23 meeting Lehigh County Commissioners held their final bi-partisan compromise vote on the $514.6 million 2020 budget with amendments, passing a tax increase to 3.78 mills.

Before the vote, Commissioner Brad Osborne, who moments later voted against the budget, made a statement saying he has respect for the ability of Financial Officer Tim Reeves, but objected to the procedure by which the administration and members of the board of commissioners reached the compromise presented in the final version of the bill.
