— SUNBURY - Northumberland County will avoid a shutdown at the end of the year after commissioners agreed to a 2014 budget during a meeting on Tuesday afternoon.
Commissioner Chairman Vinny Clausi and Steve Bridy voted to approve the budget with Rick Shoch voting against it. Clausi had said he would not vote for the budget unless Shoch, who had some objections to items in the budget, came up with one of his own.
More details will be posted as they become available.
