  • Increased the parking tax.
  • Increased and recently decreased in the city's amusement tax.
  • Calling for a $144 per person per year commuter tax.
  • Fighting with State Legislative members from western Pennsylvania.
  • Harsh towing of cars and treatments at the city owned and operated auto-pound.
