New York Daily News Tax on second home, pay freeze for city workers and more suggested by NYC’s Independent Budget Office by Shant Shahrigan
Councilman Ben Kallos (D-Manhattan), who’s outlined billions of dollars in budget savings, applauded many of IBO’s suggestions.
“If only the city would listen, we could save so much money,” he told the Daily News.
But some of this year’s proposals, like raising the fare for Access-A-Ride, the city service for disabled commuters, were non-starters, Kallos said.
“Raising fares on the disabled is just a bad idea,” he said.
