Poughkeepsie…Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro has submitted the Annual Report for 2016 to the Dutchess County Legislature pursuant to the requirements of the Dutchess County Charter. The County Executive is required to provide a written report of the finances of the County and the activities of the Executive Branch of county government each year.
County Executive Molinaro said, “Our Annual Report provides members of the Legislature and residents with a glimpse of the tireless work and services provided by the dedicated men and women of Dutchess County Government’s workforce. Together, we continue to take effective action in order to make county government the most effective and efficient it can be. I urge residents to look through the report to learn more about our departments and the work they do each day to best serve our community.”
The annual report features a review of Dutchess County’s financial condition, highlighting the steadfast efforts to find efficiencies and savings, share services with local municipalities, consolidate internal operations, and evaluate programs and services to reduce costs where possible. These actions have led to the stabilization and strengthening of the county’s finances, as well as the third consecutive year of a county tax levy reduction for residents and a reduced property tax rate in 2017.
The report also features a summary of the activities of the Executive departments of Dutchess County Government, demonstrating the continued dedication and hard work of Dutchess County Government employees.
