Pittsburgh Tuesday takes - PittsburghLIVE.com
Rule of law scofflaws: Allegheny County Council today is scheduled to vote on Executive Dan Onorato's 4 percent property assessment cap. Other than the fact that it's illegal, only exacerbates the quest to make assessments accurate, and will allow more expensive properties to escape paying their fair share, hey, it's a great idea. If the Democrat-controlled council approves of the plan, it will be guilty of malfeasance. Oh, and if Councilman Wayne Fontana participates in the vote, the candidate for state Senate who should have resigned weeks ago will have violated the county charter. What a crew, eh?
I'm on the agenda to speak at tonight's county council meeting. My topic, "County Charter." I should speak at the end of the meeting.
