Pittsburgh City Council's finance chairman has proposed a balanced budget plan.
This plan relies on getting commuter tax approval from the state, while other council members kept working on proposals that rely on increases to existing levies, like property and parking taxes. Finance Chairman Sala Udin wants to fill a $42 million deficit with a commuter tax, increased parking taxes and other payments. The commuter tax would hit all workers in the city. Udin would increase the parking tax to 34 percent, generating $3 million.
