Hamburg Town Board to vote next month on budget

After a little tweaking of the proposed 2015 Hamburg town budget, the small tax increase will be a little smaller, Supervisor Steven Walters said Monday night.

The owner of a $100,000 house would pay about $12 more in taxes next year, he said at Monday’s budget hearing.

General and highway fund taxes are projected to go up 1.19 percent for those living outside the villages, and the general and highway funds taxes for residents of the villages of Hamburg and Blasdell would be up 2.68 percent.Those percentages were down about a half percent from Walters' first proposal because two public safety dispatchers who indicated they would retire next year have said they would wait at least another year, he said. Some of the savings will be put toward hiring another dispatcher, and the rest to save on taxes, he said.

The $43.44 million 2015 budget would increase spending by 2.1 percent. The board plans to vote on the budget at its Nov. 10 meeting.
