Rockland’s County Executive Approves 2020 Budget with 2.9% Property Tax Increase and Pay Raises

Rockland’s county executive says residents will get to have their say on proposed raises for various elected and county officials, including himself, before they become official. The legislature approved the pay hikes when they adopted the budget by a 15-2 vote last week. County Executive Ed Day says the raises shouldn’t overshadow the other parts of the $730 million spending plan that got approved and he signed on Friday…

The $730 million budget is under the NYS property tax cap and calls for a 2.9% property tax increase. The county executive says that comes out to about $36 more a year for the average household. A public hearing on the raises is scheduled for December 17th.
