NIFA raising legal questions over police contract

WOODBURY - The Nassau Interim Finance Authority, NIFA, says that the recently negotiated Nassau County police contract is flawed and the agency is raising significant legal questions.

The group is taking issue with the idea of deferred payments making up for wages lost during an existing wage freeze.

Union members are expected to vote on the deal by the end of the month.

The county's Deputy Executive Ed Ward tells Newsday that the contract will save the county money, and should be approved.
