    Taking The Stairs at City Hall

    SCRANTON — Scranton City Hall is like a trip back in time, maybe a reminder of the city’s better times. The elevator has the same retro feel, without the charm though. After stalling one too many times, the mayor decided to shut it down for repairs. “For years the elevator has broken down repeatedly. It’s broken down several times since I’ve been here. It’s painful to have it down, but it needs to be repaired. There’s no other way out,” […]

    Parrots Prove Elusive in Scranton

    SCRANTON — Treetops in Scranton may have looked and sounded a bit more tropical over the past few weeks. Two parrots have had folks on a wild goose chase of sorts.

    No Commuter Tax, What’s The Cost?

    SCRANTON — The first step in the mayor of Scranton’s plan to fix the city’s finances failed when a tax on commuters was struck down by a judge Tuesday. That leaves the mayor with a tough predicament: finding a new way to fill a $15 million hole in Scranton’s pension fund. Mayor Bill Courtright’s plan involved using a specific state law to tax commuters to make up for the deficit in the pension fund, but that part of the plan […]

    Judge Strikes Down Scranton Commuter Tax Plan

    Commuters Take Scranton to Court Over Tax
