How did the county get so far in debt without anyone keeping taxpayers informed? Can they just override the 2% tax cap without explanning where the money went? Think it is time for some cuts? How do they expect the taxpayers to pay more tax when the employment in this area is so poor?

They also can make cuts with employees. Employees often have free time and are often on Facebook during their workday. All those social sites should be blocked from county/state/village/town owned computers. I was actually at a town office one time when a town employee had brought her dog to work. She said she brings him every day and he sits by her dest. Ridiculous! Also, I was at the Gouv. town office and the town clerk was making copies of pictures of her family on the town printer. This stuff should STOP.
I have been in some of the offices when the employees have time to visit, talk, and fool around. So it's not only the county...it's our villages and towns which are also WASTING our TAX DOLLARS.

No need for the sheriffs to have road patrol. Whenever u drive by the station the cars are all lined up. We have state troopers up the arse and now border patrol. What is the need for the sheriffs

With unemployment as high as it already is, I don't think cutting employment will really be beneficial.

Most local governments have their budgetary hands tied by employee union contracts, notably CSEA. Most of the ads on TV claim that cutting/modifying/reducing benefits of union members will negatively affect your children or your senior citizens or any other
"helpless, unprotected segment of society", when in reality making those changes will first and foremost affect the wallets of the union members. I do not believe the unions' sob stories. In a crappy economy, everyone needs to sacrifice a little.

I expect a barrage of replies from union supporters...bring it on, boys and girls.

Get RID of the Sheriff's patrol people, and vehicles. They are unneeded.
