Why isn't the City of New Rochelle putting any money into this?
The city would seem to benefit the most. Where's Noam? Hoping to let this slide into disrepair like so many other city institutions? View Comment
But the care isn't the same, it's only gotten worse since Obamacare became law and only 10 million of the 50 million uninsured have gotten coverage. Signing up only 20% of your target population is horrendous. View Comment
Here's a novel idea for Mayor Bramson, instead of having New Rochelle repair the roads why don't we try maintaining them instead? You know so the roads don't need to be repaired as much.
Or is New Rochelle too dysfunctional to even figure this out?
And when Bramson says we've tripled the resurfacing budget, what he really means is that we've gone to Wall St. again to borrow more since the money wasn't budgeted and we have no reserves (or very depleted reserves) to tap for emergencies such as this. View Comment
This lady's off her rockers to think we want to hear from a Noam Bramson fanatic on e-cigarettes. A true Democratic partisan who'll carry the flag no matter what. No wonder the library is what it is and she wants the county to make a law. Why not let the state do it? Westchester doesn't need any more laws.
Stick to the stacks and let our politicians to the legislating. Why does she think we want to hear her opinion on the matter? Big head I guess.
Watch out, the Democrats like her are looking to create a bigger county government again after Robs hard work whittling it down over the last 5 years. View Comment
New Rochelle has 1 of the states lowest tax rates? That's laughable and the rest of the county didn't believe it when Noam said it during his run for CE so why should we now?
Who's compiling those stats, Noam?
And the Democrats dumped Sheri Rackman? What's up with that? I guess she went against Noam 1 too many times, but every resident I know is thankful Echo Bay died although Noam certainly would like to resurrect it.
Mayor Tax Abatement, how much debt did New Rochelle have when you became mayor and how much do we have now? I bet its an astronomical increase that New Rochelle really can't afford. View Comment
What a sad day for New Rochelle and I'm not sure why Noam Bramson wants this to be his legacy but it is.
Don't maintain it and it'll eventually have to be replaced or torn down.
Sounds much like what Bramson's doing with the Armory, the City Yard and the Ward Acres Barn.
He's really running things into the ground and the roads still are in horrendous shape. View Comment
Read somewhere the Bramson machine wants her out and will primary her which is a shame as she too has been a sometimes independent voice on city council.
I guess it was those 'sometimes" that has caused Noam Bramson to find a replacement for her, someone more willing to vote his way. View Comment
But borrowing money won't solve years and years of underfunding and somehow New Rochelle still doesn't have the money to do anything.
I've gotten used to the fact that its just a horribly run enterprise led by Noam Bramson. View Comment
Is the 3.34% increase, over or under the tax cap? Since inflation is under 1.5%, I certainly hope they're trying to bust the cap with this, otherwise we're just being fleeced again.
Anyone know why Mayor Noam Bramson wanted and helped create this tax 10 years ago?
And now the library is going to have a line item for debt service?
I think we're really going down the wrong path here. I love the library but GIVE ME A BREAK! View Comment
Maybe you can get a credit for your car repairs on your tax bill? Wouldn't that be a great idea.
Imagine the expense to New Rochelle that these unmaintained roadways are taking on the city's vehicle fleet, police and fire included. Must be astronomical. View Comment
