On Friday at the Oneida County Courthouse, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente unveiled his $419.6 million proposed budget for 2019.

Picente says the proposed budget has no property tax levy increase for the sixth year in a row, but he says the zero percent tax levy cannot be sustained.

Some of the other highlights of the budget include creating a walk-in facility to help those who suffer from mental health issues and substance abuse, and Picente also proposed repurposing a building a Griffiss International Airport.
