In addition to informing the Legislature of this proposal, we have worked diligently to let all the residents, their families and employees know at the same time. This is tied to the 2013 Executive Budget that I have sent to the Legislature. As I stated at the beginning, tough decisions have to be made. I have proposed a balanced budget that reduces spending where responsible while balancing efficient delivery of our vital services. Knowing that every dollar counts, I submitted this budget pledging to continue to work to streamline government and create greater efficiencies without compromising or sacrificing programs and services that protect and serve the people of Albany County. Making a responsible decision on the Nursing Home is part of this. I am proud to say we are on the road to recovery.
