Outgoing Astorino keeps property taxes flat in proposed 2018 Westchester budget

November 16, 2017 10:14AM

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has proposed a 2018 budget that keeps property taxes flat and slightly increases spending. If approved, this would be the eighth consecutive budget without a property tax increase for Astorino, who lost his reelection bid to state Sen. George Latimer. To increase spending and keep taxes flat, the proposed budget counts on $30 million from privatizing of Westchester County Airport. [Lohud]
