The 2024 budget
The first public look at the 2024 budget was at the Municipal Council Meeting on Nov. 8. The $42.3 million budget is looking at an approximate $743,000 - $800,000 revenue gap which is proposed to be covered through a number of ways, including a potential increase of real estate taxes and use of ARPA money. Final budget adoption is expected in December.
Three public hearings were scheduled to discuss expenses, forecasted revenues, and possible tax rates for the budget. These meetings were Nov. 9 and Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. and Nov. 20 at 12 p.m. All meetings were held at Municipal Hall (235 E. Airy St.). No members from the public were present.
