MAHOPAC - Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell delivered her fourth State of the County address Thursday evening.

She called 2015 the "year of the family" in Putnam, and updated lawmakers and residents on the county's finances, public safety and more.

The county executive said she is trying to battle the heroin overdose epidemic in the Hudson Valley by equipping law enforcement with Narcan, the anti-opiate that can reverse an overdose if delivered in time.

The Republican called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to provide millions of dollars in funding to fix roads and infrastructure.

Odell said she will continue to protect gun permit holders by refusing to make their names and addresses public information.

Odell also announced that Tony Sutton will head up the Office of Emergency Services in Putnam. He held the same position in Westchester several years ago.
