Yonkers struggling to close huge budget gap
The future of education in Yonkers still hangs in the balance as the city tries to find a way to fill a $42 million deficit.
The Yonkers City Council also approved a controversial "overtime cap" that limits overtime to $20,000-a-year for city employees.
Yonkers PBA president Keith Olsen says the controversial overtime cap recently approved by the council is illegal.
The mayor has until the end of June to make a final determination about capping overtime.
The mayor's office also is being asked tough questions about recent hires while contemplating layoffs to teachers.
Seventeen people were recently hired by the Department of Public Works at a time when nearly 700 school workers are being let go.
The city council still has to decide whether to borrow money from the state to make up for the school deficit.
