Pottstown Council 'Ties' Down Budget After 4 Votes

Sure, budgets are serious business.

And we'll get to it in a minute.

But it's also the holiday season and that means, it's time for holiday ties!

Borough Solicitor Charles Garner Jr., left, and Borough Manager Mark Flanders, right, are known for their once-a-year holiday attire.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist.

Anyhoo, as you may have guessed, borough council muddled its way through a budget vote Monday night, adopting a last minute option that no one had heard before tonight.

It raises taxes slightly, 0.29%, and preserves an administrative job primarily by delaying the hiring of a new police officer until later into 2017.

It took four votes to get there, but you can read all about this like it was live, by reading the live Tweets below!
