Wilkes Barre City Council holds meeting about 2019 proposed budget

There was a big turnout at the Wilkes Barre City Council Meeting on Thursday night.

The public was given an opportunity to weigh in on Mayor Tony George's proposed budget for 2019.

The mayor was also in attendance.

People at the meeting said city council members helped clear up some confusion about the budget.

"I think the city has done a good job explaining what the costs are going to be and what the expenditures are going to be," said Harry Mccarthy, of Wilkes Barre.

The budget previously drew criticism for proposing a recyclables collection fee hike.

There will be another opportunity for the public to ask questions about the proposed budget at next week's meeting on Thursday.
