LEVITTOWN - Nassau lawmakers will have to wait another week to vote on a plan by Republican County Executive Ed Mangano to turn four police precincts into "community policing centers."
Minority leader Kevan Abrahams says Democrats will vote down a retirement incentive package for police deemed crucial to the precinct plan. The vote was expected to be taken tomorrow, but has been delayed one week because of a request by Mangano.
Mangano is banking on saving $20 million by eliminating more than 100 desk positions through the retirement incentive.
