SUNBURY — Judge Hugh A. Jones granted a petition to the City of Shamokin to continue an increased tax levy and earned income tax.

Last December, Jones granted permission to the city to maintain a 35-mill real estate tax and 2% earned income tax. The real estate millage was approved for the 11th consecutive year, while the 2% earned income tax was granted for the fifth straight year.
