A state judge on Wednesday extended Harrisburg's receivership for two additional years in what officials described as a procedural move that will allow time to complete the city's financial recovery plan.

Commonwealth Court Judge Bonnie Brigance Leadbetter issued an order granting a joint request by the state and the city to extend the receivership until December 2015.

A spokesman for state-appointed receiver William Lynch said the two-year increment is required by law and doesn't reflect the time Lynch expects to stay on as receiver.

Lynch and his team of lawyers and financial consultants are finalizing a plan that has been under negotiation since an unprecedented state takeover of the debt-strapped state capital two years ago.
