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.
