Pennsylvania Economy League Report

PEL Report 2017

Fiscal decay has accelerated in Commonwealth municipalities over the last 24 years,
according to a new Pennsylvania Economy League analysis. The negative trend
jeopardizes cities the most but also endangers boroughs, first class townships and even
second class townships, whose explosion in wealth and population since the 1970s does
not make them immune to the consequences of Pennsylvania’s broken local government
system.


The disturbing drift threatens the ability of all types of municipalities to provide even
basic services that keep the communities where we live, work, shop and go to school
safe, well-maintained, and free from crime and blight. It means core municipalities,
whose fiscal health has a direct influence on the financial well-being of the surrounding
region as centers of commerce, health care, courts, education and more, are increasingly
distressed.
