Child care and safety included in Monroe County budget presentation

 Child care and child safety are a big part of a proposed budget that will be presented to the Monroe County Legislature on Thursday.

The budget proposal includes nearly $49 million for affordable childcare — an increase of $541,000 from 2019.

There are also increases for on demand childcare, early intervention and enough money to fully fund the Child Protective Services eight point plan.

The Bivona Child Advocacy center said it’s a good start.

Rain today, High Wind Warnings tonight into Friday

Rain will be more of a factor in your day plans and in your trick-or-treat plans today than wind will. That, however, will soon change. Outside of a few showers over the Finger Lakes, most of the morning should be rain free in Rochester. Don’t expect that to last, as the rain increases both in coverage and, somewhat, in intensity during the course of the afternoon.

Many will see at least a several hour soaking rainfall midday into the early afternoon, and some, may even see an embedded thunderstorm especially over parts of the Finger Lakes this afternoon. These embedded thundery downpours will enhance rainfall totals which are already expected to be substantial through much of the area. Those trick-or-treating definitely will need to have the rain gear ready to go before heading out the door.
