FRANKLINVILLE -- A public hearing on the Village of Franklinville's 1995-96 budget will be held at 7 p.m. April 10, Mayor Raymond Doty said.

The proposed budget is expected to be about $450,000. It will go into effect in June.

The current budget, as amended, called for total appropriations of $466,824. The village is expected to have sufficient revenue to cover the cost of operating the government.

Estimated revenue for the village's coming fiscal year includes $210,912 in property taxes, $100,000 from county sales-tax appropriations, $34,000 in garbage-disposal fees, $10,000 in interest earnings and $23,661 in revenue sharing.

Fred H. Plummer, a member of the board of trustees for four years who did not seek re-election, in one of his last actions as a trustee this week introduced a motion calling for "no tax increases" and the use of surplus funds from the current and previous fiscal years to balance the 1995-96 budget. His measure passed without dissent when the board met Monday night.

In other action this week, the Village Board hired two Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies to work as part-time police officers. They will be paid $7.25 per hour -- the same as other part-time officers in the department. Chief Walt Dziekonski is the department's only full-time employee.

The new part-time police officers are Tony Wolfer of Freedom, a graduate of Jamestown Community College, and Brian Hawks of Franklinville, a graduate of Canisius College. Both are police academy graduates.
