Comptroller Auerbach: Ulster County Economy Rebounding
County spending is down from the same quarter in 2010, another good sign, he said.
“Equally as important is that the actual total salary and fringe benefit expenditures decreased $1 million from 2010 to 2011, and this was a decrease that was preceded by four years of constant salary increases and expenses,” he said. “So, the decrease symbolizes the fact that the exec and his office have taken seriously the necessity to do cutbacks.”
Auerbach has been pushing the county to use performance-based budgeting.
