$13 MILLION BUDGET FACES PUBLIC HEARING TONIGHT

The town's tentative 2005 budget will produce varied tax impacts across the town, Deputy Supervisor Marc R. Smith said Tuesday.

A public hearing on the $13 million plan is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. today in Town Hall, 6560 Dysinger Road.

Although total spending is up $44,098, or about one-third of 1 percent, Smith said homeowners in the largest of the town's three sewer districts, District 3, will see a net decrease of 1.5 percent in taxes and fees. However, residents of Sewer Districts 1 and 2 will see slight increases.

Smith said the town is passing on increases of 4 to 5 percent imposed by the town's garbage contractors, Modern Disposal and Waste Management. However, all other special district charges will decrease by varying amounts. There is no general townwide property tax.
