Neuhaus vetoes one minor item in Orange County’s 2018 budget

GOSHEN – The Orange County 2018 budget of $752 million is expected to be approved by the county legislature tomorrow (Thursday).

Lawmakers tweaked County Executive Steven Neuhaus’ proposed spending plan slightly.

The county executive returned the budget with just one veto – restoring $50,000 he included for tourism as “specialty payments that lawmakers cut.”

In his veto message, Neuhaus said the money is used for promotion of tourism in municipalities. “The county dollars have helped fund events such as fireworks in the City of Port Jervis, the 150th anniversary celebration of the Village of Warwick, as well as events in Highland Falls and the Village of Goshen,” the county exec wrote. “Thousands of residents and visitors have enjoyed events and it is due in part to Orange County Government that they have been successful.”
