PA Court Gets New Plan to Fix Harrisburg Finances

The state-appointed financial overseer of Pennsylvania's debt-laden capital city has a new plan to resurrect the city's finances and is asking the court to approve it.
Harrisburg receiver William Lynch submitted the approximately 350-page plan to state Commonwealth Court on Monday in a bid to relieve hundreds of millions of dollars of debt and erase persistent budget shortfalls in the struggling city. Part of the plan involves selling the city's municipal trash incinerator, whose debt dragged the city to the brink of bankruptcy.
The city's parking garages and lots also would be transferred to a state economic development agency that could then use tax-free financing to help pay down the city's debt more cheaply.
One city councilman, Brad Koplinski, suggests that lenders will walk away with less money than they sought.
