ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Monroe County executive Adam Bello wants to increase funding for public safety, health and wellness, and workforce development.
Bello, who this month was re-elected to serve another four years, unveiled his proposed county budget for 2024.
The proposal also includes tax cuts. Under the plan, an additional $20.5 million would be invested into the county sheriff’s office to provide more deputies in specific areas.
Bello also wants to spend $1.5 million for the juvenile enhanced diversion stabilization program. Bello says it has prevented repeat crimes among youth offenders.
