Exec. Mangano previews Nassau's revised budget plan

County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) gave a preview of his revised budget plan today as officials geared up for a meeting with the watchdog agency

MINEOLA - County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) gave a preview of his revised budget plan today as officials geared up for a meeting with the watchdog agency in charge of the county?s finances.

The briefing comes just a day before the Nassau County Interim Finance Authority (NIFA) is scheduled to hold a public meeting to review the county's progress on plugging what it claims to be a huge budget gap. The county submitted its revised plan to the agency in June.

Nassau's Deputy Finance Executive Tim Sullivan insists the county is back on track financially. He says 600 positions have been eliminated, including more than 100 recent layoffs, in an effort to balance the budget for the county's mid-year budget plan.

Legislator Wayne Wink (D-Roslyn) says he isn't convinced the budget is sound and doesn't think the NIFA board will be either.
