Controversial Budget Proposal by Rockland County Legislature

On Tuesday, hundreds of supporters of the nonprofit groups in Rockland County that are facing cuts in funding, came out to rally against the proposal. The county legislature held a meeting last night at the county office building and before residents and officials appealed to the legislature to rethink passing county executive Ed Day’s proposed 2015 budget, which would cut 111 county held positions as well as the funding for an unknown number of services provided by nonprofit organizations. Many residents spoke out about the danger of getting rid of county funding, and how it would damage communities to reduce services. The 772 million dollar budget would raise property taxes by only two percent; the first time in the past years that they will not be increased by double digits.
