Slight increase in Ashland budget for 2016
Michael Ryan provides a breakdown of the annual budget for the town of Ashland in The Daily Mail. The Ashland Town Board's 2016 spending package will total nearly $650,000, representing a slight increase over the current year. The budget included increases in the Highway Fund and the streetlight budget line, but water and sewer costs are expected to be self-sustaining next year. The spending plan contains no pay increases for the town supervisor, council, justices, clerk, attorney, tax collector and highway superintendent. The assessor; however, will receive a $200 pay hike. Additional funds were set aside for paving and repaving town roads and for snow removal. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
