Lehigh County Commissioners had a second reading of the $133,755,495 Lehigh County Capital Plan for 2018 – 2022, and then passed several motions to amend the bill at their July 12 meeting. The capital plan, according to explanatory text in the ordinance, “is a policy statement only and is in no way to be construed as a budget or an appropriation.” A vote on the Capital Plan will be held at the next meeting July 26.

“The Capital Plan kind of kicks off the budget season,” said Commissioner Michael Schware in an interview.
