Rockland Legislators are looking to pass an amended version of a proposed bill that would require the county to pay their bills on a more timely basis. Proposed by Legislator Ilan Schoenberger and supported by Legislators Aney Paul, John Murphy, and Frank Sparaco, the bill would make it so payments must be submitted within sixty days of the approval of paperwork, rather than the original proposition of thirty days. According to the various members of the Legislature since the County received a 96 million bond from the state there should be a better effort at making sure money is paid back where it can be, especially with bills. In the new bill County Executive Ed Day would be authorized to allow an extension beyond the sixty day period. There will be a public hearing on the topic at 7:05 tonight at the Allison-Parris County Office Building at 11 New Hempstead Road.
