Harrisburg to raise revenue through inspection ordinance.

Harrisburg City council members press on in their attempts to pass Ordinances 13 and 14.

On September 7, 2010, Council member Brad Koplinski and codes officer David Patton spoke at the Boys and Girls club on Berryhill avenue in support of the ordinances. They estimate that the City will raise roughly $200,000.00 per year from enforcement of these ordinances and the resulting inspection fees.

Koplinski and Patton admitted that the prior inspection ordinance was not enforced.

On September 1, Councilman Koplinski stated that the ordinances would raise "upwards of $100,000" for the City.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania's Governor has pledged 4.3 million dollars to help the City meet payroll and other obligations.
