Easton Mayor says no tax increase in 2013

EASTON, Pa. -

Easton's taxpayers are probably going to like what the mayor is cooking up for 2013.

His proposed budget holds the line on all major taxes and fees.

The 31 million dollar spending plan *does* call for an increase in downtown parking fees, from 50 cents and hour to 75 cents an hour.

Also... meter enforcement times would be extended until 8:00 PM.

City Council must approve Mayor Panto's plan.

Hearings are scheduled later this month.
