The 1998 preliminary budget prepared by North Collins Supervisor Thomas O'Boyle includes $54,000 to correct deficiencies in a closed landfill, $13,000 to operate and maintain the new Senior Recreation Center, $10,000 to install siding on a barn next to it and $10,009 to help pay for a new children's playground.
General Fund and Highway Fund tax rates for village residents will be $4.02 and for residents outside the village, $6.80, both per $1,000 of assessed valuation. The 1998 rates are not comparable to 1997 rates because of the town's property revaluation.
The budget will be reviewed at a date to be set next Wednesday.
The appropriations are: Townwide General Fund, $488,259 and $126,952 (for non-village services); highway fund, townwide, $48,642 and $312,237 (outside the village). The $111,425 Fire Protection fund tax will be $1.31, and the per unit charge for trash collection will be $146.10, up $1.50.
Salaries generally will be raised 2.2 percent, the budget shows. They are: supervisor, $8,900; councilman, $3,105; two justices and a clerk, $16,798; clerk, $21,402; assessor,$8,003; and highway superintendent, $32,260.
