Tax bonus

I see Shamokin Mayor John Brown gave a $10,000 bonus to all full-time city employees and $5,000 to part-timers. The bonus was awarded just a few days after court approval of Brown’s petition to keep city taxes at the highest rate in Shamokin history. I understand that federal grant requirements would have allowed Brown to use the $225,000 for other things needed by the city. Mayor Brown gives his buddies’ at City Hall a big bonus and all Shamokin citizens get are high taxes.
