WYOMING BUDGET TOPIC OF HEARING

Wyoming County's tentative $93.8 million budget for next year will be reviewed at a public hearing at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the county's Government Center in the Village of Warsaw on Route 19.

The proposed spending plan includes an increase of 6 percent, or $567,121, in the tax levy, which would rise to $10 million.

The tax rate would average $6.61 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, a 2.48 percent increase from $6.45, county officials said.

Officials estimated that owners of a home assessed at $100,000 would pay $661 next year, $16 more than this year.

County revenues total $81.2 million, an increase of $2.7 million, or 3.5 percent.

That includes $11.6 million from the county's sales tax, up $500,000 from this year, according to John Edwards, county treasurer. To hold down the tax rate, the budget incorporates $2.5 million from reserve funds.
