Counties in the News, January 9, 2017

Monday's news from counties across the state.
NYSAC
The County Perspective on the State of the State, and the start of the 2017 Legislative Session
The State of NYS Counties
As state lawmakers return to Albany to conduct the people's business and Governor Andrew Cuomo is presenting the state of the state, regionally, NYSAC takes this opportunity to reflect on the state of NYS counties.
 
Fiscally, many counties struggled mightily to stay within the state imposed property tax cap. In 2017, forty-five counties enacted budgets under the tax cap, again sacrificing local programs and services in order to pay state mandated ones.  Unfortunately, twelve counties had extraordinary circumstances that required additional revenue to provide state program support.
