Former Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper has been sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy and tax evasion charges.
Pittsburgh’s police pension fund says a former chief who pleaded guilty in a corruption case will lose a $63,000 pension.
It’s a tale of two cities — with two very different outcomes.
Free parking is the norm at most suburban shopping malls, but those who shop in Downtown Pittsburgh or the city’s seven neighborhood business districts have to pull out the quarters to park their cars at metered spots, at least during the daytime. Evening parking has been free, but that changes in 2013 unless City Council acts.
If you park in the city, you know that the rates have gone up as city parking taxes have gone to bail out its grossly underfunded pensions. But even that added burden turns out not to be enough to set the pensions right.
Pittsburgh City Council has unanimously given final approval to a bill that will roll back parking meter enforcement hours.
A plan to generate hundreds of millions of dollars toward the city’s depleted pension fund is not getting high marks from the state. A new report said that plans to get pensions at least half-way funded are not enough.
