Mangano: Tax hike likely if borrowing plan rejected

County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) warned residents in his State of the County address that if Democrats fail to approve his multi-year borrowing plan, there

GARDEN CITY - County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) warned residents in his State of the County address that if Democrats fail to approve his multi-year borrowing plan, there could be a 13-percent property tax hike and deep cuts.

"The time is now for the three Democratic county legislators to lay politics aside, stand up, join NIFA, the majority in the Legislature and me in implementing a plan that prevents a property tax hike and pays off tax refunds owed," Mangano said last night.

In their rebuttal that followed Mangano's address, Democrats questioned plans to borrow $102 million to pay for property tax refunds in Nassau.

Nassau is already planning to close four of its eight police precincts to save money.
