Public Hearing on Tentative 2021-2022 Village Budget.Note: This public hearing will be continued at the Meeting of April 5 at 6 pm. A presentation providing an overview of the tentative proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2021/2022 can be viewed by clicking on Agendas from the Village website and selecting the March 29 meeting. Manager King will present brief highlights of the proposed 2021/22 budget which calls for a 3.82% increase in the tax rate.   This does not comply with the NYS Tax Levy Cap. This year’s allowable limit is $12,341,899, an increase of $412,549 over last year.  The proposed levy for the 21/22 FY is $12,474,070 which is $132,171 over the allowable limit. The median assessed property in the Village would pay $149 more in taxes.  Non-tax revenue is down $2,187,047 from the prior year. Last year, in anticipation of pandemic related   loss of revenue, the Board cut $415,388 in expenses.  The 2021/22 proposed budget cuts an additional $365,810 over and above last year’s cuts.  The complete detailed budget documents are available on the Village website,  CLICK on the Budget Public Hearing Notice in the center of the Home Page.
