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.

On December 2, 2019, a public hearing for the 2020 was held, followed by a Special Meeting of the Electors, at which the 2019 town levy of $1,630,428 was approved.  This amount was up from $1,547,115 in 2018, and results in a mill rate of 4.08.  The adopted 2020 budget is linked above, in both summary and detailed forms.
