Rally Set to Support Nonprofit Groups Facing Cuts

The many nonprofit groups in Rockland County that are facing funding cuts with the $772 million budget proposal for 2015 will be holding a rally on Tuesday. The budget would save $6.8 million by cutting 111 countywide positions including 37 within the Sheriff’s Department. Supporters of Sheriff Lou Falco have staged several protests asking the Legislature to rethink the proposal. 33 positions will be cut in the Department of Social Services, laundry, security, and hospital radiology, as well as 41 jobs in departments that have not been announced. Funding cut from nonprofit organizations will save the county $3.3 million, but cut services given to residents. The rally in support of the nonprofits will be held at 6:00 PM just before the 7:00 Legislature meeting at the county office building in New City.
