Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his COVID-19 briefing at the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains. He was joined by Village of Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity. Latimer addressed county finances briefly at the end of his talk. “The loss of revenue has created a significant hole in our budget,” said Latimer has he referred to impacts such as the loss of sales tax revenue, hotel tax revenue, bus revenue and recreation program revenue. The budget shortfall is estimated at $181 to $247 million on a budget of $2.1 billion.
