Johnsburg board mulls modest property tax increase

2013 spending plan under 2 percent tax cap increase

— The funding level for Hudson Headwaters isn’t etched in stone, Vanselow stressed.

“We still have time to have that conversation,” Vanselow said. “There’s room (in the budget to make adjustments.)”

In crafting the budget proposal, Vanselow said he tried to be conservative and not be too optimistic about what revenues would be. He noted that in 2012, sales tax receipts are up about 5 percent over 2011.

The public will have an opportunity to weigh in on the budget at a public hearing scheduled for 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Wevertown Community Center. Copies of the proposed budget will be available at Town Hall this week and the proposed budget will also be posted on the town website www.johnsburgny.com
