Livingston is proud to share that we are one of only a few communities statewide to receive a perfect “zero percent” stress monitor score from the NY office of the comptroller, a metric that shows the Town is in top financial shape. The Town has held that rating in the years 2015-2019.
The state’s stress monitoring program is designed to be an early warning system for counties, cities, towns, and villages. The score factors a community’s year-end fund balances, operating deficits or surpluses, cash position, use of short-term debt for cash flow, and fixed costs to assign a value from Zero (perfect financial shape) to 100 (critical financial challenges).
The Town Board offers thanks to Jim Guzzi who has served as the town’s budget officer.
