Town board to hold 2014 budget hearing|

The Oneonta Town Board plans to adopt a 2014 budget with a 1.22 percent tax levy increase, Supervisor Robert Wood said Tuesday.

The floor will be open at a public hearing at the 7:30 p.m. beginning of tonight's board meeting in Town Hall in West Oneonta. Wood said the board will vote after the hearing.

The $1,223,834 general fund budget is up about $20,000 from this year's plan, Wood said, and the highway budget of $1,108,395 is up about $28,000.

With the tax levy increase, a homeowner with a property assessed at $100,000 would see an increase of about $12, Wood said.

Highlights in the budget include a $60,000 transfer for planning expenses for a new highway garage, $10,000 for economic development and a 2 percent increase in wages for town employees, Wood said.

In other business at tonight's meeting, Robert Harlem, chairman of the Comprehensive Planning Committee, will present a draft plan, and reports from various board committees will be given.
