$25 Million Ulster County Deficit helps county make correct Golden Hill decision
The silver lining is that this bad $25 Million Ulster County budget deficit news helps the county legislators and Mike Hein make the correct decision on the future of Golden Hill. They now can in good conscience decide to no longer subsidize Golden Hill each year. County taxpayers should not have to pay higher taxes to subsidize Golden Hill any longer. The Golden Hill subsidy is only going to grow in the coming years with the reduced Federal and State Medicaid support. I am sure that a private concern would be willing to continue running Golden Hill at the high level of care that it deserves.
