Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00

This winter, the state fiscal watchdog NIFA took over Nassau County’s finances. Now, six months into the “control period” this summer, the authority’s attitude has apparently been heating up to match the seasons.

Meeting July 14 at The Long Island Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Uniondale, NIFA’s board of directors employed an impatient and chiding tone, delivering a clear message: Nassau County’s efforts to rectify what NIFA considers to be a financial disaster in the making are not good enough.
