Munhall only has $20,000 in its checking account, and no bank wanted to give the community a loan because of bad bookkeeping.
"At the 11th hour this afternoon, due to some advertising we did, we placed a request for proposals in the newspapers and we've heard from people who have the ability to lend us money,” said Dan Lloyd, borough president.
Private loans come with a higher interest rate, but the borough has no other choice. If the last-minute money doesn't come through, jobs will be on the chopping block.
The borough council blamed much of the money problems on the borough’s former manager who unexpectedly resigned last summer.
The police chief said the district attorney is investigating the former manager.
