Reallocated Funds Keep Northampton Day Cares Open Until May

Posted February 21, 2006 11:36 a.m. EST

— A day care dilemma in Northampton County is over -- at least for now.

A program that offers subsidized day care to the working poor came up about $200,000 short, but Northampton County commissioners modified the county's budget to come up with enough money to fund the program.

The move keeps more than a dozen day-care centers operating until May.
