Tompkins County Legislators Start 2013 Budget Review
Tompkins County lawmakers have kicked off the 2013 budget review process, lawmakers looked at seven different department budgets Tuesday.
 
The proposed 2013 Budget calls for nearly  $165 million in spending next year, which is a less than 1% increase in spending over the current year.
 
The proposed tax levy would increase by nearly 4%, property taxes on a $160,000 home would go up by $18 dollars if the spending plan is approved as is.
 
Lawmakers reviewed the Airport, Assessment Department, Assigned Counsel Office, Board of Elections, Finance Department, and County Clerk budgets. They also looked at the county’s five year Capital Program.

The County Administrator recommended over-target spending requested by all departments presenting tonight.
 
Legislators will hear from six more county departments when the committee reconvenes next Monday.
