FERRY WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN CITY COUNCIL BUDGET

 

On Thursday Councilman Eric Ulrich released a statement regarding the Rockaway ferry:

“Despite the Council’s best efforts, the de Blasio Administration has decided not to include 
any  funding for the Rockaway Ferry subsidy in this year’s budget. 
While I am pleased that we will be adopting yet another on-time, 
balanced budget without raising taxes, I am extremely 
disappointed that ferry service may end in October. 
The fight is not over and I am committed
to working with all my fellow elected officials to put pressure on the Mayor 
to keep this vital  lifeline going.”
