Infrastructure

Saving the city money by refinancing bonds and other methods, Comptroller Darlene Green has freed up more money for infrastructure maintenance and improvements. Saving the earnings tax, which comprises approximately a third of the city’s annual budget, stopped a budget crisis where all remaining monies would have gone to public safety and there would have been no funding for critical infrastructure maintenance. Green is committed to finding even more ways to pay for our essential infrastructure needs.
