NIFA: Nassau hasn't done enough to plug budget gap

UNIONDALE - Despite hundreds of layoffs and a new plan to restructure the county's police department, Nassau officials have not gone far enough to plug a massive budget gap, according to the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA).NIFA board members met today to review County Executive Ed Mangano's (R-Nassau) efforts to fix the county's finances. Instead of submitting a plan by today's deadline, county officials called the NIFA board to say a plan exists, according to board director Christopher Wright.Wright says that at this point, Nassau officials "are at least a day late on today's deadline and definitely a dollar short." According to Wright, the board has only seen about $40 million in savings, instead of the $150 million needed to fix the budget hole.Mangano plans police revamp in Nassau CountyCritics take aim at Nassau Exec.
