The Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania on Friday confirmed attorney David Unkovic as receiver for Harrisburg.

Appellate court senior Judge James Kelley, in announcing the confirmation, said Unkovic, previously the chief counsel for the state's Department of Community and Economic Development, has 30 days to develop a recovery plan for a city that is $310 million in debt and has skipped about $60 million in bond payments tied to an incinerator retrofit project.
