• Welcome to Harrisburg, PA "The Capital City"

    If you're like me, when you think of Pennsylvania, what cities come to mind? For me, it's always been Philadelphia & Pittsburgh. Well, a new city has climbed my rankings of one of the nicest cities I've visited and is most definitely right up at the top in the State of Pennsylvania! Harrisburg is a city of endless architectural beauty and it's location along the gorgeous Susquehanna River make this place a definite hidden gem!

HEADLINE: Penn. gov. launches state takeover of capital CAPTION: Pennsylvania's governor launched a state takeover of the heavily indebted capital city of Harrisburg on Monday by declaring a fiscal emergency --responding to a crisis provoked by a money-losing municipal trash incinerator. (Oct. 25) PENNSYLVANIA'S GOVERNOR IS DEFENDING HIS DECISION TO LAUNCH AN UNPRECEDENTED STATE TAKEOVER OF THE STATE'S CASH-STRAPPED CAPITAL. GOVERNOR TOM CORBETT DECLARED A FISCAL EMERGENCY ON MONDAY. IT COMES DAYS AFTER THE REPUBLICAN SIGNED A LAW THAT GRANTS HIM THE ABILITY TO CONTROL MUCH OF HARRISBURG'S FINANCES. CORBETT SAYS THE MOVE WAS NECESSARY TO ENSURE THAT VITAL MUNICIPAL SERVICES ARE MAINTAINED. SOT: IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT WE'RE AT THIS POINT AND THAT I HAD TO SIGN THE DECLARATION YESTERDAY. CORBETT HARRISBURG IS SADDLED WITH 300-MILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT. AND SIX PENDING LAWSUITS - ALL RELATED TO A TRASH INCINERATOR. WHEN THE INCINERATOR WAS SHUT DOWN IN 2-THOUSAND FOR EXCESSIVE POLLUTION, OFFICIALS SPENT 125-MILLION DOLLARS ON UPGRADES. BUT THE FIXES ONLY LED TO MORE PROBLEMS AND DEBTS. HARRISBURG'S RESIDENTS NOW PAY AMONG THE HIGHEST TRASH DISPOSAL RATES IN THE NATION. YET THE FACILITY DOESN'T GENERATE ENOUGH TO PAY OFF THE INCINERATOR'S DEBT. HARRISBURG'S MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL ARE CURRENTLY IN A STALEMATE OVER HOW TO REPAY THE DEBT. CITY COUNCIL - IN DEFIANCE OF THE GOVERNOR - FILED A CHAPTER NINE BANKRUPTCY PETITION IN FEDERAL COURT EARLIER THIS MONTH. A JUDGE HAS YET TO DECIDE WHETHER THE PETITION WILL BE ACCEPTED. SOT: COUNCILMAN MUNICIPAL BANKRUPTCIES ARE RARE. ONLY A FEW DOZEN HAVE BEEN FILED IN THE UNITED STATES IN THE PAST THREE DECADES... AND SOME OF THOSE WERE DISMISSED. IN CALIFORNIA, ORANGE COUNTY TOOK THE ACTION IN 19-94. AND VALLEJO ALSO DID THREE YEARS AGO. MOST RECENTLY, A STATE RECEIVER FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY IN CENTRAL FALLS, RHODE ISLAND IN AUGUST. AND JEFFERSON COUNTY, ALABAMA IS CONSIDERING CHAPTER NINE AS A SOLUTION FOR IT'S 3-BILLION DOLLAR DEBT. MEANTIME IN HARRISBURG -- SOME RESIDENTS BELIEVE THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CITY'S FINANCIAL TROUBLES SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. SOT: I THINK IF THE GOVERNOR IS GOING TO STEP IN AND TAKE THE CITY OVER, THEN HE SHOULD GO AFTER THOSE PEOLE WHO STARTED THIS WHOLE MESS AND GOT THE CITY INTO THIS PROBLEM AND THEY SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. KHALDUN RASHEED/OCCUPY HARRISBURG HARRISBURG'S MAYOR HOPES TO STRIKE AN AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY COUNCIL ON A FINANCIAL STRATEGY BEFORE THE FULL BREADTH OF A TAKEOVER GOES IN EFFECT. BUT IF A DEAL ISN'T REACHED IN 30 DAYS, THE GOVERNOR CAN APPOINT A RECEIVER WHO WOULD HAVE THE POWER TO SELL CITY ASSETS, APPROVE CONTRACTS AND FILE FOR FEDERAL BANKRUPTCY PROTECTION.
