County Executive Rob Astorino says 104 affordable units have been approved in Cortland, Yorktown, and Rye City.

“… and that puts us past this year’s benchmark,” Astorino told WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development mandated that the county have a hundred units approved by December 2011.

Astorino says, “We’re working very hard on this.”
