Residents gather in Chappaqua for first meeting on proposed county budget

On Wednesday, more than 100 people turned out in Chappaqua for the first public hearing on County Executive Andy Spano's $1.4 billion proposed budget. County workers who may lose their jobs because of budget cuts took their case to the Board of Legislators. Officials say 319 jobs will be cut, 236 of which are actual layoffs. The county legislature's budget committee now has the tough job of getting reaction, making changes and drafting a final proposal within a month. The second of three public hearings is set for Thursday night at the Port Chester Middle School.
