New York State Conference of Mayors unveils
2019 state budget priorities
As state officials craft the 2019-20 budget, more than 80 city and
village officials, including 50 mayors, call for increased State
investment in their communities
ALBANY – More than 80 city and village officials, including 50
mayors, from across New York State converged on Albany on
Monday to discuss the New York State Conference of Mayors’
priorities for the upcoming 2019 Legislative Session.
“Whether it’s clean water, garbage pick-up or public safety, cities
and villages are responsible for providing essential services that New
Yorkers rely on,” said Gary McCarthy, president of NYCOM and
mayor of the City of Schenectady. “Today, mayors and officials from
around the state are sending a clear message to state leaders that
we stand ready to be your partner so that we can strengthen our
communities and in turn, our state.”
“From infrastructure to tax structure, there are many challenges
facing local governments in New York State,” said Peter Baynes,
executive director of NYCOM. “NYCOM will continue to try to work
with state leaders to ensure that all cities and villages receive the
attention from the state that they need and deserve.”
In the spirit of partnership, NYCOM is proposing a new $100 million
Municipal Investment Initiative that would provide need-based funding to
cities, villages and towns while incorporating the kinds of shared services
and economic development that municipalities have done for years into
each region’s strategic vision. To that end, NYCOM ties this state funding to
municipalities completing multi-year financial plans, engaging in efforts to
encourage economic growth and working collaboratively to accomplish
goals set by the Regional Economic Development Councils.
At the same time, existing state programs aimed at addressing
transportation and water and sewer infrastructure have begun to
make a difference, but significant local needs remain. The
Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) is an
important tool that assists local governments with the cost of
construction, reconstruction and improvement of local highways, bridges and highwayrailroad
crossings. NYCOM supports increasing CHIPS funding in order to ensure that critical
resources continue on a recurring basis.
Further, NYCOM believes that additional CHIPS funding should be targeted toward
compliance with federal curb redesign mandates and the related sidewalk repairs
necessary to create more pedestrian-friendly and accessible municipalities.
In addition to maintaining highways, cities and villages must also address aging and
deteriorating water and sewer infrastructure to protect their communities and their residents.
NYCOM supports the establishment of an annual funding stream that could be used by all
cities and villages to supplement water infrastructure operation and maintenance costs, as
well as a fund to address emergency water infrastructure needs.
Cities and villages would benefit not only from innovative state resources, but also from the
ability to generate new resources of their own. NYCOM supports the collection of taxes on
sales by online retailers with a substantial economic presence in the state. Last year, the
Executive proposed an internet sales tax and projected it would generate approximately
$150 million in local sales tax revenue statewide.
To expand the benefit of this infusion of local sales tax revenue, NYCOM also supports
legislation to ensure that villages are included in sales tax sharing arrangements in all
The New York State Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials (NYCOM) is an association

officials in an active statewide network focused on the singular purpose of finding the most
