The County is facing a steep budget deficit of $160 million this coming year. In an attempt to close the gap, Nassau County government is suggesting cuts to many programs and services. A partial list of discussed cuts includes youth services, bus services and emergency and fire prevention training. A property tax increase of 1.2% would raise about $12 million in revenue, would cost the average household about $23, and would help preserve services. Those in support of a tax hike believe the cuts will affect the most vulnerable.

At the corners of Elm Drive and Midwood Cross (neighborhood of Country Estates in East Hills) and Glen Cove rd. are bus stops on a hill that are extremely dangerous. The bus stops should be graded and made flat so in inclement weather individuals aren't at risk of slipping off the hill into on coming traffic.
