>Town budget hearing scheduled for Oct. 14
Holland's town budget for 2010 is not expected to lead to a higher tax rate, but town officials still are not pleased with it.
Supervisor Michael Kasprzyk said the budget calls for no raises and cuts back on contractual items but still maintains services.
Most departments held the line on spending, while some offered cuts, he said.
However, the supervisor noted that there is an element of risk in the new budget because it depends on $150,000 of unexpended funds from this year's budget to balance it.
The board scheduled a public hearing on the 2010 preliminary budget for 8 p.m. Oct. 14.
