The Mayor of Bethlehem says he's creating a task force to keep an eye on the city's finances.

Mayor Bob Donchez announced the creation of the Financial Advisory Committee Wednesday.

The Mayor says the volunteer task force has one mission.

"Their goal is simple: to offer ideas, suggestions and recommendations to me on how to make the city more efficient," he said.

The committee is made up of five local business leaders including former Bethlehem Mayor Ken Smith and the Vice President of Bethlehem-based candy company Just Born.
