Rockland County to Absorb Election Costs, Providing $1.2 Million Boost to Local Government Budgets

Rockland County, led by County Executive Ed Day, Legislature Chairman Jay Hood Jr., Minority Leader Lon Hofstein, and Budget and Finance Committee Chair Aron B. Weider, has announced a new policy to assume the costs of running elections within its municipalities. This initiative, set to provide approximately $1.2 million in economic relief to local governments, is a strategic move to alleviate financial burdens on towns, potentially allowing for reduced taxes or enhanced public services for residents.

By taking over these expenses, the County aims to foster a more collaborative and financially sustainable environment for its communities. The decision is expected to offer towns the flexibility to reallocate funds towards areas that directly benefit constituents, marking a significant shift in how local governments manage and prioritize their budgets.
