Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus delivered his State of the County address to a large audience on Wednesday, May 25th at the Emergency Services Center auditorium.
The address highlighted several accomplishments in the past year, as well as new initiatives, including a proposal to clean up the former Camp LaGuardia in the Towns of Chester and Blooming Grove and turn it into a County Park for generations to enjoy.
Neuhaus was introduced by Senator Mike Martucci.
“County finances are strong, and one of my top goals continues to be to maintain and improve property values, a major barometer of our local economic strength,” Neuhaus said. “We do that by enhancing the manufacturing, tourism, and transportation sectors of our County. Strengthening those areas, along with supporting our strong local schools and quality healthcare, will help to maintain and even increase property values in Orange County.”
Neuhaus plans to continue his focus on economic development and tourism, and public safety, as well as working to strengthen the County’s infrastructure.
“Orange County is moving forward in a positive way and the government has been well-run by County Executive Neuhaus,” said Katie Bonelli, Chairwoman of the Orange County Legislature. “Our County is extraordinarily strong and poised for continued economic success. The Legislature and I look forward to continuing our positive partnership that results in gains for our residents.”
