  1. Hopefully the new Mayor will reduce all the citys non essential personal,and bring the PD FD and DPW Dept. up to adequate staffing levels.Thus reducing the overtime, and allow these departments to operate within there budgets.

  2. Bogus is right,the budget is full of anticipated
    revenue that will never materialize. Its to bad
    the State looks at it from simply an accounting
    standpoint and not a realistic one.

  3. With all the corruption in Yonkers government it’s hard to believe how this Comptroller can allow Yonkers to pass these bogus and porous budgets year in, year out.

  4. I can do you one better, anon…Average Joe would have been MUCH better off if the politicians didn’t give the unions the contracts they now curse, and if this gutless mayor had actually sought to renogitate the contracts before he slithers out of office, instead of leaving it to the next guy.

  5. Thankfully that is over, but the result would have been far better for the average Joe in Yonkers if the unions had not been so selfish about hoarding their benefits in outdated contracts.
