Overall Budget increase of Just .93% and the 4th year in a row that this is under the New York State Tax Cap. Levy. This year the Tax Cap. Levy is .73% (Because of prior year’s carry forwards we are under the cap.) Rateables are up a little over 2 million for 2016. Fund Balance used was $115,000.00

All the special districts taxes show no increase or a decrease in the tax rate.

Capital Projects funded for next year include a new Walking Trail, new Pickleball Courts , expansion of the playing field near the North Playing Fields and our new Senior/Community Center. Possible additions might include a new playground and bathroom facility. 

New water source for 2016 is in the study phase. This would bring a new source of good quality water for our Downtown residents as well as Business expansion for rateables.
