Thursday, November 22, 2012 by DANIEL MINGUEZ Special to The Press in Local News

Lehigh County Commissioners let a budget amended by County Executive Bill Hansell stand at their Nov. 14 meeting.

The budget was returned to the commissioners by the executive who vetoed amendments to the budget that would have cut $5 million in spending and reduced real estate revenues by a little more than $5 million.

Instead, the budget was amended by Hansell to include a total of $3.5 million in spending cuts to specific line items and a reduction in real estate revenues by $3 million.
