City of Hazleton Files For Act 47

August 09, 2017 - 5:22 am

Late yesterday afternoon Hazleton Mayor Jeff Cusat said in a news release "It is with great dismay" that he announced his decision to file for Act 47. That means the state Department of Community and Economic Development will now look at the city's finances. They will determine if the city is financially distressed. If yes, Hazleton would then be eligible for loans and grants through the  DCED financial recovery program.
