County Council Considers Own Referendum

Allegheny County Council tonight will hold a special public meeting to determine the legitimacy of adding their own drink tax referendum to the November ballot. Council President Rich Fitzgerald says tonight's meeting will "codify" council's ability to enact a referendum via ordinance and that he doubts a motion will be made to add a referendum tonight. A referendum would give voters the opportunity to choose between the 10 percent drink tax or a raise in property tax.
