New City, Mar 7 — Rockland’s County Executive delivered a somber message to the County Legislature last night in the annual State Of The County Address. Calling the 2012 budget a “a painstaking, often contentious and difficult process,” Scott Vanderhoef discussed the challenges of running Rockland County under a property tax cap, coping with unfunded state mandates and delayed payments from the state government.
