The owner of the average home in Hamburg would pay less than $14 more in taxes next year, under a tentative budget filed by Supervisor Steven Walters.
The combined general and highway fund tax rate would go up 15 cents to $10.57 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for residents living outside the villages of Hamburg and Blasdell. Village residents would also have a 15-cent increase to $4.92 per $1,000. The average assessed value of a house in Hamburg is $98,590, according to Assessor Milton Bradshaw.
The tax levy would go up 2.1 percent under the $47.09 million budget.
The supervisor did not respond to repeated telephone calls to explain the details of his budget.
The Town Board will discuss the budget during a work session at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 16. The budget hearing is scheduled at 7 p.m. Oct. 23.
