If you haven't had a chance to look over the 2007 Town of New Hartford adopted budget, here's some information you might be interested to know particularly if you live in the part of the Village of New York Mills that is in the Town of New Hartford
While it is true that the 2007 Town tax rate will only go up $.04 per thousand (from $2.01 to $2.05 per thousand of assessed value) for most of the residents of New Hartford, Village of New York Mills residents that live in the Town of New Hartford will have a tax rate increase of $.16 per thousand (from $.08 to $.24 per thousand of assessed value). These rates do not include any increases due to the approved bond resolutions that are scheduled to be voted on in January 2007.
If you are not familiar with the town budget, the General Wholetown is paid by all residents regardless of where you live in the town.
The Gen. Wholetown Minus NYM is paid by all residents except for those living in the part of the town in the Village of New York Mills. The Village of NYM does not pay this part of the tax rate because it is for the New Hartford Police and NYM has their own police department.
Residents living outside the Village of NYM pay the combined total of the General Wholetown and the Gen. Wholetown Minus NYM.
