County Executive and County Legislature Reach Multiple Agreements

It was announced last night that County Executive Ed Day and County Legislature Chairman Toney Earl were able to put political differences aside and put together a series of actions on the Sheriffs’ Deputies’ contract, funding for nonprofits, and county finances. Officially, the settlement includes the new Sheriff’s Deputies contract, which will cover the period from 2011 to 2016 and includes a retroactive 2 percent salary increase each year for 2014, 2015, the first half of 2016, and a 3 percent increase for the second half of 2016. Other agreements cover the funding for 32 community benefit organizations for the rest of the year and the Tax Anticipation Note, which is passed every year and acts as a bridge loan to pay school districts, towns, and villages the taxes they have levied. Finally, a special joint meeting has been planned to discuss the future of the Sain Building.  (Source: Press Release)
