To the Editor,
This week the Board of Trustees will conclude its budget review in advance of adopting a budget for the fiscal year 2018/2019. During this process, the Board has met with every department covered in the budget over several meetings starting in late March.
A new feature of this year’s budget review has been the inclusion of an annual report to the Board by each department head. These reports provide a detailed overview of all the activities that each department is responsible for during the year. The Agenda section on the Village Home page, crotononhudson-ny.gov, will lead you to the budget work session agendas where these reports are part of the backup documentation.
If you have asked yourself what a particular department does or is responsible for, you should look at these reports. You will be amazed at the multitude of responsibilities of our work force. It is a good place to start in terms of understanding the many ways in which each Village departments enhances our Village experience.
