WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino singled out Mount Kisco Mayor Michael Cindrich on Wednesday night during his annual "state of the county" address.

During a part of his speech on "partnerships," Astorino mentioned years of study and negotiation about the possibility of Westchester County Police providing services to the Village of Mount Kisco on a contract basis.

"Mayor Cindrich's goals were to improve police services, while lowering costs. I said it sounded like a good idea. My only caveat was that it had to be cost neutral to county taxpayers."

Astorino said he directed Public Safety Commissioner George Longworth to see if a deal was possible. The county determined that Mount Kisco could save $2.4 million over five years; police coverage to the village could be enhanced with more officers on the street; and the deal could be done at no additional cost to the county.

The village board approved a contract on Monday that requires county Board of Legislators' approval..

"Mayor Cindrich is with us tonight and I would ask him to stand and be recognized for his vision and leadership on this issue,'' Astorino said. "Earlier today I sent the agreement to our Board of Legislators for review, and, hopefully expedited approval."
