Westchester County Executive Releases Budget

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino released his proposed budget for 2016 on Friday. In order to prevent tax increases the $1.8 billion dollar proposal calls for 25 layoffs as well as cutting 60 vacant positions and funding for several nonprofit organizations of up to 70%. Astorino stated that he will veto any counter proposal that raises taxes for residents, and to make up for the gap in spending the county will borrow $11 million to be paid back with $60,000 a year, and defer $3 million in pension obligations. The Legislature will begin over the budget this week, and has until December 27 to approve it.
