This article reports that New York Comptroller Alan G. Hevesi will officially wade into Erie County's fiscal mess, after agreeing to the county's request to review its troubled finances. Meanwhile, a state judge is expected to rule on three cases challenging more than $105 million of budget cuts Erie County's executive and legislature enacted in its $1.1 billion 2005 budget, the separate plaintiffs each said. County Comptroller Nancy Naples, sheriff Patrick M. Gallivan, and county clerk David Swarts have sued the legislature and County Executive Joel A. Giambra because, they allege, the budget cuts are so deep that they are unable to fulfill their legal mandates as county-wide elected officers.
