Dozens protest Newburgh's deficit at City Hall

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of people in Newburgh marched to City Hall to protest the city's deficit today.

The protesters say they want answers about the city's finances and their concerns that the city is going bankrupt.

The city recently passed a 71-percent tax increase as well as many service cuts.

Officials say that because of the recently passed budget, the city's finances are back on track.

The protesters say they aren't satisfied, and will continue to take their fight all the way to Albany to meet with elected representatives there.
