This will mark the fourth State of the County address for both Muller and Brown since their elections in 2013.
During his speech last year, Muller provided an overview of the Lehigh County’s economic outlook, provided a budget update, highlighted major projects, and discussed challenges facing the county moving forward.
In his address last year, Brown explained that Northampton County had moved into a stronger financial position than three years earlier due to spending reductions, cost savings, and improvements in efficiency.
