Greene declares state of emergency

CATSKILL — Legislature Chairman Patrick Linger declared a State of Emergency in Greene County on Wednesday in the wake of New York City’s decision to relocate and house a portion of its immigrant population in upstate communities.

“If it were allowed for the city of New York or other municipalities to simply flood the county with persons in need of services, as described in the related declaration, this crisis would only worsen,” according to the order.
