County Executive Ed Day Delivers Address

County Executive Ed Day delivered his State of the County Address on Tuesday, with the main focus of 2015 appearing to be continuing economic growth in Rockland. Day stated that bringing new businesses in will benefit tax payers and help to continue keeping the budget below the state’s two percent tax cap. The County Executive also expressed the need for New York State Officials to institute mandate relief, as currently 82 percent of the county’s taxes are made up of nine state mandates. The address also touched upon the future proposal for a new facility for the highway department, keeping tolls low on the new Tappan Zee bridge, and the appointment of the new director of economic growth, Lucy Redzeposki. Residents and first responders most positively reacted to day’s statements that the county will begin further enforcing illegal housing and zoning violations, a problem that has affected the county for some time, and creates unforseen dangers for people living in the homes and the firemen who respond to emergencies in them. Day stated that the upcoming year will focus overall on, “the commitment to pay down our debts and continue the conservative, common-sense management of our county’s resources.”
