The budget is about $4 million dollars more than the current budget.

It includes funding for a County Humane officer and maintains funding levels for libraries.

15 jobs will be cut, unfunded or phased out by attrition.

County legislators are reacting to Picente’s budget proposal.

This is Democratic Minority Leader Frank Tallarino.
