Public Hearing on 2011 Budget Rescheduled to November 8

Tuesday, October 19, 2010
The Legislature has adjusted the schedule for deliberations toward a 2011 Tompkins County budget, delaying the Public Hearing on the budget, which had been scheduled for November 3, until Monday, November 8. The hearing will be held on November 8, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Legislature Chambers in the County Courthouse, 320 N. Tioga Street, Ithaca.

The revised schedule also changes the date of the final Expanded Budget Committee review from October 28 to Monday, November 1, beginning at 5:30 p.m. A vote on the amended tentative budget is now scheduled for the Legislature's November 3 meeting, with final budget adoption still scheduled for November 16.

Also related to the 2011 budget, the Legislature tonight heard from 18 people who urged restoration of funding eliminated from the budget--'Social Services preventive services delivered by Catholic Charities and the DSS Family Resolutions project; the Health Department home health care and early intervention programs; and County matching funds to support municipal youth development. Among those addressing the Legislature were eight young people from the Towns of Ulysses and Newfield who talked of the personal and community benefits the youth programs have produced.
