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.
