Cayuga County Legislature passes 2017 budget under state tax cap

The Cayuga County Legislature passed the 2017 budget 11-3 at its final meeting of the year on Thursday night.

Before voting, legislators gave $31,500 toward county libraries and $5,000 for cost of living increases to staff of the county's Cornell Cooperative Extension.

The remaining approximately $15,500 was pulled from the fund balance, which is like the county's savings account.
