Cashing In On Commuters

Commuters will be paying extra to work in Scranton. A controversial commuter tax was voted into law. The 0.75% earned income tax will help to fund the city’s pension crisis. Only 1 city council member voted against the ordinance. Bill Gaughan wanted to table the tax for a later debate, but in the end the bill passed with a vote of 4 to 1.
