YONKERS, NY — June 24, 2020 — Twelve municipalities in the State of New York will need to await what is known as AIM, that is aid to municipalities. The shortfall for the City of Yonkers were it to be ameliorated on the back of the taxpayer would require a surcharge of approximately 6 percent.

The impact of the shortfall will come into affect this FY2020-2021 posing a serious cash-flow concern. Additionally, the withholding of AIM funding will make paying of essential services a challenge. The other concern is that there is no assurance that the Federal government will reimburse New York State before the end of President Trump first term in office expires this year, or if the president will reimburse New York State should he be re-elected for a second term. Were Joe Biden to win this year’s presidential election how soon before the Biden Administration will be able to focus on this specific outstanding IOU reimbursement. President Trump has not been too pleased with Governor Andrew Cuomo.

While other affected municipalities have declared the financial position with which they find themselves, exacerbated as it has been by the COVID-19 Pandemic. The City of Yonkers has issued no such notice neither from the office of Mayor Mike Spano, nor from Yonkers Finance Commissioner John Liszewski.

The anticipated AIM funding should have been disbursed in this quarter. This is pertinent because this is also the last time any municipality has to adjust their allocation of spending for the balance of the year.

  1. Hezi-please consider using the Freedom of Information Law to obtain the names all of the people who work on Mayor Spano’s staff. Publish their names, titles, and salaries. I am sure Yonkers taxpayers would very much like to know this information, particularly when massive cuts to education loom on the horizon. Thank you.

      I will advise when I have completed the FOIL request and publish it online and prepare it to be emailed moments after my posting it for the world to see and read. Thank you for the suggestion. — Kindly,

      Hezi

  2. Hezi-I have asked this of you in the past. PLEASE F.O.I.L. the list of all the people who work in Spano’s office, and their titles and salaries. Rumor has it that old offices have been subdivided into numerous cubicles just to be able to fit all the patronage hacks he has hired. This will make for good reading when teachers, aids, school psychologists, and other BOE employees get sent packing due to budget cuts.

  3. Hezi, do you have any reporting on the City Court Judge race? Looks like a bad day for the administration – I would love to get your take on things.

      I will do a synopsis on what transpired after the official declaration / validation by the Westchester County Board of Elections. Kindly, Hezi

  4. Budget worries? I’ve got a suggestion – defund the Yonkers Police and Fire Departments. The highest 230 salaries in Yonkers are all from police and fire and these people are bleeding the city dry with their extreme salaries. Now remind me again about why we need that tax increase on homeowners to plug those budget holes?
