YORK, PA (WPMT)  York City is getting some unexpected help in dealing with a 7 million dollar deficit in Mayor Kim Bracey’s proposed 2015 city budget.  Last week  in an effort to close the gap she proposed cutting 75 jobs including nearly half the city’s police force.

Late today the Bracey administration in response to numerous requests announced that individuals interested in providing financial assistance can do so by sending donations to the attention of the City of York, P.O. Box 509, York, PA.  17405 or bringing them to the Mayor’s Office, York City Hall, 101 S. George Street, York, PA.

Individuals can earmark their donations for specific departments within the city York, such as:

York City Police Department

Department of Fire/Rescue Services

Economic and Community Development,

Business Administration

General Fund

Contributions to the City of York are not tax deductible.  A spokesperson confirmed the city is also working on an online system accepting donations will be made available in the very near future.

    This is a joke, right? The elected officials, who are paid to prevent this sensibly, have turned the the city government into an entity on the street corner crying for help ’cause it’s poor. York City residents should be outraged!!! My advice, PAYCUTS as an incentive to get it right!
