More than two dozen municipal governments in the state are under fiscal stress, according to a report released Tuesday by Comptroller Tom DiNapoli.

“Although the number of local governments designated as fiscally stressed has declined noticeably, there are still too many communities struggling with chronic budget strain,” said DiNapoli. “Looking to the future, local officials should exercise fiscal caution through sensible spending decisions, realistic revenue projections and proper long-term planning.”

The fiscal stress designation was first created in 2013 as a way of offering an early warning to local governments facing budgetary problems.

The report this year found eight counties, eight cities and 11 towns are under fiscal stress — the lowest number since the reports have been issued.

The information is based on 2016 financial data.

Of the governments under significant fiscal stress, two counties are on the list: Broome and Monroe. Albany and Watervliet are among the cities with the highest designation of fiscal concern as well.
