Nassau Officials Agree on Budget, Four-Year Plan
After much negotiation, Nassau officials ultimately agreed on a budget for 2001 as well as a four-year plan, which was mandated by the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA). As a result, Nassau County residents can expect a 9 percent property tax increase for 2001, which amounts to $95 a year per average household. The four-year plan, passed unanimously by the Nassau County Legislature, then calls for a 5 percent increase each year from 2002 to 2004. Because of the agreement, Nassau lawmakers have averted for now a takeover by a NIFA control board.
