2 MILLION CUT FROM DEPT BUDGET REQUESTS- DEPUTY SUPER- PRESIDENT, TOWN SUPERVISORS ASSOCIATION.
Release Date: November 18, 2007
The Greenburgh Town Board will hold our budget hearing on November 28th at 7:15 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall. Prior to submitting the proposed 2008 budget to the Town Board for consideration, I CUT over $2 MILLION DOLLARS from department budget requests. Some of the department heads have already started lobbying to have the funds restored. If you would like a copy of the list of budget cuts that I submitted to the Town Board, please e mail me and I'll forward the list to you. Many of the initiatives that were deleted from the proposed budget were worthwhile expenditures. We need to prioritize spending and have to do a better job of saying no, instead of yes to requests. Otherwise, tax hikes will be much higher.
Your suggestions re: additional cuts are welcome and will be considered.
MORGAN, BROWN TO BE NAMED DEPUTY SUPERVISORS IN 2008-- I have decided to appoint Kevin Morgan as Deputy Town Supervisor during the first six months of 2008. Sonja Brown will be named Deputy Supervisor during the second six months of 2008. I had considered naming citizens as Deputy Supervisor (this is done in Rockland County and around the state) but was persuaded that there are advantages to having town wide elected officials serve as Deputies.
