Cuomo reconsidering proposed aid cut to NY towns, villages

Originally published in Auburn Citizen

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is reexamining his state budget proposal that calls for eliminating aid to several towns and villages across New York.

In Onondaga County, eight towns that receive more than $100,000 wouldn't receive that aid. 

State lawmakers have urged Cuomo to restore the AIM funding in his budget proposal. Last week, state Sens. Bob Antonacci and Rachel May, called on the governor to abandon the plan to slash AIM payments.
