Budget Process

Each Fall the Town Board holds budget workshops to plan the budget for the following year.  This is followed by a public hearing that must be noticed at least 15 days in advance and include a summary of the proposed budget.  After the public hearing, the town tax levy must be approved by the electors at a special meeting that is also posted at least 15 days in advance.  Then the Town Board must formally adopt the budget.

A public hearing for the 2021 Town Budget was held on Monday, December 7, 2020.  No members of the public had an questions or comments.  The Town Board approved the budget at their December 21, 2020 meeting.  The approved budget is linked below in both summary and detailed form.
