Apr 25, 2013 8:48 am
Kyle Adams reports in The Daily Mail the village of Catskill has drafted its 2013-14 budget. The total spending plan comes in at nearly $6.5 million, and requires a 1.8 percent tax levy increase, resulting in five-cent increase in the tax rate. Some of the largest spending increases come from employee benefits and salaries. Village President Vincent Seeley credits the village’s ability to keep taxes down to responsible spending, aggressive debt reduction and some lucky development. Appearing on the WGXC Afternoon Show, Wed., Apr. 23, Seeley discussed the budget process and the importance of investing tax dollars wisely. PLAY clip (1:38). The village budget will be presented to the public May 14. Ron Diamondstein's full interview with Seeley can be found online at wgxc.org/archives.
