‘Draconian’ budget cuts outlined in Montco
budget cutting options for Montgomery County were described as ‘draconian’ at a recent county commissioners meeting. Included in the list of budget proposals were: dipping into cash reserves, which would jeopardize the county’s Triple A bond rating; reducing, or eliminating $6.25 million in appropriations for libraries, community college costs and busing; furloughing county employees and freezing salaries; or increase property taxes by 28.6 percent, which would add an additional $130 to the average county property tax bill. The commissioners are working toward closing an estimated $44.1 million budget gap. A draft budget is expected Nov. 30.
Lower Merion planners approve City Avenue rezoning ordinance
The Lower Merion Township Planning Commission gave a positive recommendation to the City Avenue Rezoning Ordinance, but added a twist to the controversial plan. The planning commission has proposed making the City Avenue zoning change effective only after the master plan for the area has been created. The master plan would define preferred locations for streets, trails for connection to the commercial district, and gathering places. The proposed ordinance designates two areas for new zoning regulations, which encourage mixed-use development. Lower Merion commissioners will hold a public hearing on the proposed rezoning Dec. 14 at 6 p.m. in the Township Administration Building, 75 E. Lancaster Ave., Ardmore, PA.
