New York State Conference of Mayors Unveils 2019 State Budget Priorities
Posted Tuesday, November 27th 2018

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.
