Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino delivered a mid-year update Wednesday on the county’s finances, in which he directed department heads to lower costs by 20 percent, or $94 million. He also asked union leaders to agree to salary freezes and health-care contributions in effort to curb what he predicts will be a $130 million deficit in 2011.
Astorino will meet with the Editorial Board to talk about the county’s finances, budget cuts and affordable housing in an Editorial Spotlight interview at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 28.
