ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. – The Rockland County Legislature voted to raise the proposed 2016 budget submitted earlier by a 9-8 vote on Thursday night, according to LoHud.com.

The new budget will break the tax cap at a cost of $732 million, which the legislature also approved by an 11-6 vote, LoHud reported.

County Executive Ed Day's projected budget was $727 million and was dependent upon breaking the tax cap, reported LoHud.com.

Legislature Chairman Aiden Wolfe voted against both measures, which will raise taxes at a rate just under 10 percent.
