PICA Board Delays Vote on Mayor Nutter’s Five-Year Plan

The Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority (PICA) has decided to delay its vote on Mayor Nutter’s five-year plan for the city of Philadelphia. The decision was a response to the Nutter administration providing the board with a list of $200 million in proposed cuts it would make if the city loses its appeal of the firefighter’s arbitration ruling. The cuts include eradicating positions in a number of departments, restricting hours at public libraries, and deactivating fire companies. The PICA chairman says that the board will vote before the end of the month. Let’s hope Mayor Nutter’s five-year plan doesn’t involve working at Hooters. [Daily News]
