Proposed WC budget gets 1st public hearing

Westchester residents attended the first of three public hearings on the proposed county budget Thursday night in New Rochelle.



County Executive Rob Astorino is proposing a nearly $2 billion budget for 2015. The budget calls for no property tax hike for the fifth straight year and a spending increase of only one percent. There are also no layoffs.



People at the hearing say they were concerned about cuts in the budget to child care and after-school programs.
