Albany County Executive Dan McCoy unveiled the county's budget Tuesday - without job losses, cuts in services, or tax increases.
The total budget is right around $719 million - which is $13 million less than last year.
McCoy used $8 million from reserve funds and saved another $5 million by offering early separation payouts to about 70 county employees.
However, the county is still relying on getting federal stimulus money, but that's not guaranteed.
McCoy says he's planning a trip to Washington next week so that he can lobby for stimulus money.
Learn more about why McCoy says the 2022 budget could also be a challenge in addition to the 2021 budget by watching the video of Dan Levy's story.
