On Wednesday night, November 18, the Town Board will approve the budget for 2010. There’s no reason to go to the meeting. The public hearing was already held, and the election resoundingly supported what is now a 9.5% tax increase.
Ms. Annabi will get the same salary as the other Town Board members. Mr. Cinque will keep his health insurance for his part time employment with the town, and presumably Ms. Annabi will take advantage of that benefit also.
