Yonkers City Council discusses plan to save teachers' jobs
After days of protests and public meetings, the Yonkers City Council met to discuss efforts to save hundreds of teaching jobs from being eliminated in next year's school budget.
The plan would take a $20 million loan from the state to help close the looming massive $42 million budget gap.
Some council members are weary of the plan, saying that the move would only push the problem down the road and increase the city's debt.
Any plan involving a state loan would still require approval by the state legislature and the state comptroller.
