Delaware County, Pa., recently hired as a budget consultant a key official at the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority following the recommendation of an investment banker who has worked on recent agency bond issues.

For the $125-an-hour position, Henry received the unanimous approval of the county's five-member county council, which includes Wallace Nunn, a senior managing director and head of public finance at Smith Barney Inc.'s Philadelphia office.
