New Hartford Town Board Meeting - Friday, October 5, 2018

The 2019 Tentative Budget was distributed to the town board members and is available to FOIL from the town clerk's office.

I have a paper copy, however; the town board is scheduled to meet tomorrow, October 10, at 6 p.m. to further discuss the budget; make changes or not; and possibly adopt a resolution for the Preliminary Budget. The Preliminary Budget will them be available in the town clerk's office and be the subject of the Public Hearing where the public will have their chance to comment.

For now, I can say that part of the budget is the salaries of town employees and elected officials.

Other than the normal 3% raises given out each year, salary changes include:
  • Town Supervisor from $ 15,240 to $ 25,000
  • Personnel Tech. II from $54,89 to $ 71,017
  • Highway Superintendent/Sewer Superintendent from $ 65,000 to $71,000
Various other things jumped out at me, but this is not the final budget; it is only the first draft which was proposed by the town supervisor.

Below is the video of the October 5, 2018 meeting:

Here is a pdf copy of some of the budget adjustments proposed by the town supervisor which was handed out to the town board at the meeting. None was provided to the public as is required by the Open Meetings Law, but I was able to obtain a copy from the town supervisor after the meeting.
