COOPERSTOWN —

Otsego County's proposed budget for 2014 calls for a property tax increase of less than 1 percent, an achievement made possible by the postponement of expensive purchases and other belt-tightening measures, county Treasurer Dan Crowell said today.
 
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.
