Grier’s fight with county continues
Tim Grier has asked the Commonwealth Court to prevent Luzerne County from borrowing $93.5 million while he challenges it in court. The county also argued that public interest “will be harmed” by a delay in issuing the bonds because the proceeds will fund important projects.
Grier has a sensible response saying most of the bond proceeds have not yet been allocated to “identifiable projects.”
“A review of the ordinance in question proves this,” Grier’s response says. “If the projects have not yet been identified, let alone been subject to planning and cost estimates, how could the county be harmed by a stay in issuing the bonds to support these unidentified projects?”
Grier proposed the county use the delay to continue planning and producing cost estimates.
