The Community Meeting will be held on Thursday, February 16th in the Council Chamber at New Rochelle City Hall, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. sponsored by Assemblyman George Latimer and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin. Attendees may testify for up to four (4) minutes on any aspect of the State budget proposal; written testimony will also be accepted at the meeting and over the ensuing week (until Friday, February 24th). The Governor’s proposed budget totals over $130 billion; budget highlights may be viewed on the Assembly website at No appointment is required; speakers will be heard on a first-come, first-served basis, with a few exceptions made for unique circumstances.
