Suffolk County spent 9.7 percent less in employee overtime last year than in 2011 -- despite superstorm Sandy, officials said.
The county incurred $65 million in overtime in 2012, compared with $72 million in the previous year. County Executive Steve Bellone credited new limits placed last February on approvals of nonemergency overtime, including requiring requests seven days in advance.
