Cash-strapped Harrisburg, Pa., could miss a March 1 debt-service payment of $2 million on debt backed by Pennsylvania’s capital city, according to city Controller Dan Miller.

The city is the first guarantor on $282 million of resource recovery facility bonds that the Harrisburg Authority, which owns the city’s water and solid-waste operations, sold in 2003 to help finance upgrades to the solid-waste facility. Dauphin County, in which Harrisburg is located, is second guarantor on $150 million of the $282 million of debt, Miller said.
