The October 30, 2008 Observer Dispatch Legal Notices lists two (2) Public Hearings to be held in November in the Town of New Hartford.
On November 5, 2008 there will be a Public Hearing at 6:00 P.M. in Butler Hall regarding the Preliminary Budget for 2009. We will post a copy of the 2009 Tentative Budget later today.
On November 12, 2008 there will be a Public Hearing at 6:00 P.M. at the Ralph Perry Junior High School on a proposed new law to amend the Code of the Town of New Hartford by adding a new chapter 117 entitled "Water Service Local Law".
Part of this proposed new law, Section 21 - Equivalent Dwelling Unit Schedule - may affect the number of benefited units (Equivalent Dwelling Units) to be assessed for each given property type within water districts, i.e. Higby Road Water District. The number of Equivalent Dwelling Units are used to determine the amount each property within the water district is to pay on their Town and County Tax bills to repay the debt for installation of water lines. We will be posting the proposed new law in the next day or two.
