Ticonderoga adopts 2010 spending plan

Families who qualify for free lunches at Ticonderoga Central School will not be charged for the five-week program.

Families who qualify for reduced lunches at school will be charged $12.50 per child per week to attend the summer program.

Families who do not qualify for the free or reduced lunch program will be charged $25 per child per week to attend.

Complicating the budget was the loss of $75,000 in mortgage tax, the result of fewer home sales in the town in 2009.

Dedrick said all town departments made cuts for 2010 as officials worked to keep taxes down.

"People have to understand that we have a lot of fine services in Ti," Dedrick said. "In making this budget we (town trustees) tried to balance the needs of taxpayers with our quality of life. I think we did a good job."

Dedrick credited Amy Quesnel, his clerk, with her work in the budget process.
