BROOKVILLE â€” The proposed 2013 budget for Jefferson County includes a tax increase, the commissioners announced at their meeting on Tuesday.
The commissioners approved a motion to place the 2013 budget on display for 20 days with the vote for adoption scheduled for Dec. 11.
Though the statute requires the proposed budget to be on display for 20 days, it will actually be available for 21 when all is said and done. It is available to be viewed upon request.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” This weekend is set to be a magical one in Punxsutawney with an old tradition â€” the Home for the Holidays Parade â€” slated for Saturday evening, and while the magic can be found all over town, PRIDE's Nutcracker Weekend features what has become a holiday favorite in the area, with Van Dyke & Company and the Mahoning Valley Ballet's cast putting on another installment of the long-beloved performance.
Well-known for the vivid images of soldiers and dancers, The Nutcracker is one of the most popular performances in the tradition of ballet.
The members of Big Run Cub Scouts Pack No. 250 are doing their part to help the environment.
Gruda Metals, owned and operated by Philip Bowser Jr., John Paul Bowser and Kay Bowser, will be supplying a roll-off dumpster to be placed in Big Run resident Timothy Boal's yard.
The scouts are asking fellow residents of not only Big Run but surrounding areas to bring any scrap metal they have, whether its a refrigerator, microwave or other appliances, to the dumpster.
