Yonkers Budget Crunch

By
Real Estate Agent with KELLER WILLIAMS REALTY GROUP

 

Map of YonkersThe Yonkers Budget is due the middle of next month and its not looking too good. New York State is facing a $5 billion budget deficit, America is singing recession, and I spend more money on gas than food. Insane!!

The City of Yonkers could become a city in jeopardy if it doesn't get any help from the state, home owners, President Bush, Yonkers Raceway, or for God's sake, anywhere! LOL. My biggest concern is the school district budget which predicts a short fall of $22 million and more than 400 layoffs. Also Insane!! The city plans to throw its weight around using its teacher's union, the fourth-largest in the state, to lobby on its behalf...

Is the casino adding any revenue to the city? What about all of the new construction projects? Help...

Comments and suggesttions are always welcome...

Maybe Yonkers needs a new Mayor and a lot of other help.  Thanks for sharing Michael, nice post.

 Long ago before I did this entrepreneurial thing ( hope I spelled that correctly) I worked in payroll. I seem to recall that if a person lived in Yonkers in NY there was a separate code in payroll like a city resident that was required to pay city taxes. Yonkers residents had to pay additional taxes as a resident of Yonkers also.
