Official announces that he wants to cut costs, streamline procedures


At his State of the Town address, Hempstead Supervisor Anthony Santino outlined his plan to cut costs for the town and improve quality of life.

"By slashing payroll costs, reducing overtime expenses, as well as consolidating and streamlining procedures," Santino said.

At his event at the Hempstead Town Hall on Wednesday morning, the Republican supervisor promised to cut the town's budget in 2018.

Santino who has been Hempstead town supervisor for nearly two years said it would be the third year in a row in which he lowered costs.

"I am proud of the accomplishments we have made together in 20 short months," he said.

He also touted reductions that he said has saved the town millions of dollars by decreasing the town's auto service facilities by 88 percent and selling outdated town equipment.

"Managing the costs I have outlined as well as others we can keep the tax burden that is born to homeowners and businesses to a minimum," he said.

Santino also said he wants to improve life-saving programs and the quality of life by installing sunscreen dispensers at local pools and putting defibrillators in parks.

Incumbent Santino is running against Democrat Laura Gillen for Hempstead Town Supervisor.
