December Council Meeting Highlights

Three retiring members of Council

The New Rochelle City Council finished their legislative calendar with votes on a number of items, end-of-year remarks, and farewells to retiring colleagues.

The Council voted unanimously to adopt the budget for Fiscal Year 2024. The $305.8 million budget, presented in October by City Manager Kathleen Gill, strikes a balance between fiscal responsibility and a resolute focus on critical infrastructure and public safety.  In compliance with New York State tax cap legislation, the budget includes a 2.32% tax rate increase. For the average homeowner, this translates to a $94 annual increase, or approximately $8 per month.  Read about budget release.

Tax Amnesty Program Extends into 2024

Finance Commissioner Edward Ritter reported that the Tax Amnesty Program launched in March has helped 253 families to become current with their taxes and remain in their homes, with many overcome by tears of relief from the worry over their tax debt. The program has recovered $2,531,429 and the Finance Department will now continue to work with homeowners until June 2024. Learn more.

 Firefighter Contract approved

The City Council unanimously approved a multi-year agreement with the Fire Fighter Union Local 273. Fire services are both supported and enhanced in the 2024 budget, which augments the Department’s on-duty minimum staffing to 36 members.

City Council meetings are streamed live and available on demand at and broadcast live and replayed on NRTV cable channels Optimum 75 and Verizon 28. At the end of the Regular l
