The New York State Comptroller’s office has deemed Westchester County’s fiscal health for the fiscal year 2022 to the coveted “no designation category,” which represents the highest level of fiscal stability attainable.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “While this designation is impressive, our real achievement is that Westchester County experienced the substantial reduction from “14.6” to a stellar “0” within just one year. A score of “0” signifies the highest level of fiscal health a municipality can attain under this assessment model.”

Additionally, Westchester County’s environmental stress score remains unchanged, maintaining its “no designation” status with a score of 20 points. This accomplishment underscores the County’s commitment to responsible environmental stewardship, while ensuring fiscal stability.

Latimer continued: “We would like to extend our gratitude to all County departments, employees and stakeholders who have contributed to this remarkable fiscal turnaround. Your dedication and hard work have played a pivotal role in securing Westchester County’s strong financial footing. This achievement is a testament to our commitment to sound financial practices, and responsible governance.”
