Rockland County Legislators have proposed a law that would require the county to make payments on loans and bills whenever they have the money to do so. According to Legislator Ilan Schoenberger the “We Pay Our Bills Timely” law would help the county with paying vendors, currently Rockland receives bills, after submission the paperwork takes about thirty days and the county then had ninety days to issue checks. Schoenberger stated that though stated that though the checks are often issued within those ninety days, they are not mailed until well after. The new law, which is backed by Legislators John Murphy and Frank Sparaco, would require the checks to be mailed within thirty days after the paperwork is finished and if the county is late interest would be added on. The board’s Budget and Finance Committee will be meeting Tuesday night at 7:15 at the Allison- Parris Office Building, where the new plans will be discussed.
