Nassau comptroller predicts improving economy will lead to budget surplus
Nassau County Comptroller Howard Weitzman has predicted that Nassau?s improving economy will lead to a budget surplus of between $48 and $70 million.
Nassau Republicans are hoping the extra money will provide some relief for area residents beleaguered by high taxes. But County Executive Tom Suozzi stands by his policies, saying that Nassau is financially stronger than it has been in a decade.
Despite the surplus, a tax rebate is not expected. The best-case scenario involves a ?no tax increase? for the third straight year when the budget is released in the fall.
