STATEMENT BY COUNTY EXECUTIVE DAY ON STATE COMPTROLLER'S REPORT REGARDING FISCALLY STRESSED COMMUNITIES
Comptroller DiNapoli's report detailing 2013 conditions comes as no surprise. The people of Rockland County elected me to fix the financial mess we inherited. Since January, we have taken significant steps to restructure county government and cut operating costs, resulting in a bond upgrade and a positive outlook from Moody's. That said, this report should serve as a stark reminder - to our residents and our legislators - that Rockland County remains in a precarious financial situation. This administration will continue to take the necessary steps toward fiscal health.
