Daily Briefing, 5/31/2011

Good morning everyone, and welcome back to work after what was hopefully a nice long weekend.  Here is today's Daily Briefing.

In Bethlehem, Controller Meg Holland says that Musikfest is not paying enough for the services it receives from the city.  Phillipsburg began festivities for its 150th anniversary.  In Easton, the city will be installing new smart meters for street parking.  The Southern Lehigh School District has to now deal with an accounting error that will force the district to find an additional $1 in its budget.  The annual Mayfair Festival in Allentown concluded yesterday, with the festival's attendance down about 13,000 compared to last year. Former Vice Presidential nominee and possible Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was in Gettysburg yesterday as part of her nation-wide bus tour.  In national news, Goldman Sachs has downgraded prospects for growth in the U.S. economy.

That's it for now!  Have a great day and we'll see you later.

You'd think someone could loan the district a dollar?

;) Sorry Mike, couldn't resist!
