County Board supports Youth Bureau

The Washington County Board of Selectmen sent messages of support for the County Youth Bureau and for farmers to the State Legislature and approved a Solid Waste Management Plan at their monthly meeting March 18.

The board passed two resolutions regarding Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s budget proposals.

One resolution asks the State Legislature to keep the rules for distribution of funds to local Youth Bureaus as they are. Mike Gray, who is director of the Washington County Youth Bureau and Alternative Sentencing program, said a proposed change in how money is distributed could cost the local bureau up to its entire $133,000 funding allotment. That change comes as the governor cuts funding and combines the revenue streams that fund the programs.
