Commissioners briefed on financial forecasting model

Gretchen Naso, a principal officer from RKL LCC, briefed the Lehigh County Commissioners about a five-year financial forecasting model developed for aid in future planning.

Naso’s plan presented at the Nov. 21 meeting of the Lehigh County Commissioners, analyzed Lehigh County’s finances for the last five years to give planners an idea of how financial decisions today may impact the future.
