Cortlandville taxpayers would see their town tax bill remain unchanged next year under the town’s preliminary 2014 budget.
Cortlandville Town leaders have adopted a preliminary budget that increases spending by just over 3% next year. The $6.6 million dollar budget calls for a tax levy of $1.7 million, that’s about $10 thousand dollars more than the current year.
Town Supervisor Dick Tupper says the increase in spending can be attributed in part to increased health insurance cost and pension contributions. The town is increasing expenditures by about $300 thousand dollars. Among the increases in spending are $2 thousand dollar raises for the Town Councilmen and a $4 thousand dollar raise for the Supervisor. The town is also adding $40 thousand in spending for a second justice position.
The budget also calls for increased spending on youth and recreation and more money for data processing.
The proposed tax rate will remain unchanged at $3.07 per thousand of assessed value. Tupper pointed out that taxes in Cortlandville have not increased in nine years.
