Twin Tiers (WENY) - One New York state county executive wants to bring ideas to the state before local governments become quote "distressed". Ulster County Executive Mike Hein plans to announce a new effort to bring fiscally stressed local governments together to share their best ideas before its too late.
           T
he state defined "distressed" status could trigger state involvement in restructuring local operations. Hein will announce today a series of statewide forums to identify the ways local governments have eased their fiscal pain. Other wise could mean higher taxes and reduced or eliminated services for neighbors across the state.
