Round 2 in West Seneca budget hearing is Monday

West Seneca Town Board members got an earful two weeks ago when residents filled Town Hall to complain about the proposed 12 percent increase in taxes in next year's budget.

Round 2 will take place Monday, when residents have another chance to tell the Town Board what they think of the proposed budget.

A second hearing will start at 6 p.m. in West Seneca West High School auditorium, 3330 Seneca St. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

The increase is mainly due to less reliance on the fund balance, mandated health insurance increases and capital investment in new roads, according to Supervisor Sheila Meegan.

A 12 percent increase would add $135 to the tax bill for the owner of an average home in the town, which has a fair market value of $150,000, according to town officials.
