ULSTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Ulster County Executive Mike Hein outlined his plan for 2013 in his annual State of the County Address.
Hein laid out his agenda for the new year at SUNY Ulster in Stone Ridge, while touting his successes in 2012. He says his reforms save the county and taxpayers from facing double digit tax increases. Hein also says he's hopeful for this year.
"Ulster County is strong and getting stronger and it's built on a foundation of progress. That’s really the exciting part about tonight. The reality is we've been able to deliver more reform and as a result, deliver the first county property tax cut in over a decade. It’s extremely exciting, but we've been able to do it while still delivering more services than ever before to people in need,” Hein said.
Hein also says he believes that public safety should be a priority in the new year. He says wants to invest in safety initiatives for the more than 180,000 people that call Ulster County home.
