I AM SUBMITTING AN AMENDED BOND REFUNDING RESOLUTION TO SAVE THE RESIDENTS OF HUNTINGTON ADDITIONAL MONEY.
I am currently working with the Interim Comptroller to amend the Bond Refunding resolution in order to save the residents more money than originally proposed.
The new resolution will address the following:
1) Reduce the proposed issuance of Bonding from 24 million dollars to match closer with the debt proposed to be retired of 23.36 million dollars.
2) Establish a strategic financial plan to maximize the savings to the town through a thorough review and reallocation of proposed bond refunding maturities.
3) Establish a savings plan so as to allocate the savings to benefit the taxpayers through reduced issuance of debt or reduced spending in each respective year.
“I am disappointed in the comments made by my democrat colleagues but look forward to working with them and keeping focused on the task at hand of saving money for all the residents of Huntington,” said Councilman Mayoka.
