LONG ISLAND -

Residents and officials alike say they are frustrated over proposed fee hikes in Nassau County.

County Executive Ed Mangano's new spending plan includes $60 million worth of fee increases, including a traffic ticket surcharge.

Both Republican and Democratic legislators have voiced their opposition.

“We will not be supporting the fees,” says Kevan Abrahams, (D-Freeport).

Mangano's office says the revenue increase is needed to ensure critical services remain in place.

A vote is scheduled for Oct. 30.
