The final budget hearings are Wednesday night. There are still areas where the Town Board can do some trimming, but they probably will not. You should tell them where you want them to cut anyway. Maybe the next board will listen. There is a public hearing about overriding the tax cap. If the proposition doesn’t pass, they are planning to override the cap. It appears that the library is about 2.8% of the budget. So our increase will be higher than the projected 2% if the proposition passes.
The Board is planning to pass the budget the same night, so they are not planning to pay a lot of attention to the public, but one can always hope. It is time to elect a Board that will seriously trim the fat.
What does the town have to say about a liquor license at O’Connor’s? I guess we will find out.
