ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Some potentially good news for town and village budgets, the state Assembly has completed its revised version of Governor Cuomo's budget, and has included an increase to aid and incentives to municipalities funding.
The increase is about ten percent, amounting to a few thousand dollars for some places, and millions for larger cities.
This would be the first increase in state aid in five years and would hold steady for three years.
Of course the Assembly's proposals would need to be agreed upon by the Senate and Governor Cuomo before any funding is final.
