Otsego treasurer proposes small property tax increase

No raises for for managerial employees

COOPERSTOWN —

The spending plan, which still needs to be reviewed by the full 14-member Board of Representatives, would also provide no wage increases to the county's pool of managerial employees, who have gone without raises for the past six years.
