EAST RAMAPO - State Sen. David Carlucci (D-38th District) has confirmed that the East Ramapo School District will soon have a fiscal monitor.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be appointing a fiscal monitor for the district, which has been plagued with budget problems for years.

Local officials say the move is long overdue.

East Ramapo Superintendent Dr. Joel Klein says he knew nothing about the decision to install a fiscal monitor in the district. He told News 12 Hudson Valley that he is waiting to hear more before commenting on camera.
