Albany, Rensselaer Counties consider budget plans

Posted: Updated:

CAPITAL REGION, N.Y. - The Albany County budget for 2013 is expected to be voted on Monday.

County legislators will take on the $568 million spending plan during a special meeting at 6:30 tonight.

The proposal includes a nearly 9 percent property tax increase, and could also lead to the privatization the county's embattled nursing home.

Both points have caused their fair share of controversy during recent public hearings on the budget.

The Rensselaer County legislature will also consider their budget Monday.

The proposed spending plan includes a tax increase of 1.25 percent, which, if passed, would be the second year in a row the county's budget has come in under the state's tax cap.

The legislature will decide on the budget during a special meeting at their chambers at 6 p.m.
