Day Opposes Legislators’ Proposal to Cut Positions

On Tuesday County Executive Ed Day released an email stating the Legislature’s plan to cut county held positions. According to Day, at a September 8 Budget and Finance meeting the Legislature announced their proposal to abolish twenty-four positions, two of which are vacant, to save $2.8 million. In the release Day stated, “Four of the positions were selectively targeted due to their professional obligations to enforce the legal and operational terms of the County public transportation contract with Brega Transportation Corp.” Day’s administration previously cut within the county that led to nearly $3 million in salaries and benefits being saved. The resolution was sponsored by Legislative Chairman Alden Wolfe, and Legislators Aron Wieder and Ilan Schoenberger, and seventeen of the twenty-two positions proposed to be abolished are held by women, which Day states could lead to litigation against the county. The County Executive will be holding meetings for the public to discuss Rockland finances and growth on Spetember 16 at 12:00 PM at the Nanuet Library, October 22 at 7:00 PM at Fieldstone Middle School, and on November 20 at 7:00 PM at the Suffern Library.
