Mayor Kennedy Opposes NYS Budget Actions to Protect Freeport


As president of the New York Conference of Mayors (NYCOM), Mayor Kennedy specifically opposed the NYS 2019 Criminal Justice Reforms that create a burden for police departments, to perform their initial "discovery" obligations in a reasonable time. These discovery changes are expected to increase municipal spending and cost Freeport taxpayers in excess of 2.2 million dollars, or a 5.7 % tax increase next year— beginning January 1, 2020.
