Counties in the News, March 8, 2016

Wednesday's news from counties across the state.
NYSAC
The County Perspective: Week of March 6, 2017
NYSAC's Legislative Team is developing a series of fact sheets on State Budget priorities, designed to clearly communicate the county position on several issues of concern to counties as lawmakers begin to prioritize their spending plans for the 2017-18 State Budget.
 
NYSAC is sharing these fact sheets with State Lawmakers, and they will be available for download at http://www.nysac.org/nysbudget on Tuesday, March 7. We encourage county officials to use these fact sheets as they discuss budget priorities with their representatives in the State Senate and Assembly.
