Supervisor Forbes led discussion of the 2014 Town budget that was adopted as the preliminary Town budget at the October 2nd meeting.

Board members made a decision to reduce the Town Clerk’s contractual budget by $2,000 from $12,500 to $10,500.  Certain budgeted expenses were moved from the Town Clerk’s account to the Supervisor’s account and led to this change.

Board members also agreed to a 25-cent per hour increase in the salaries of the Highway Department employees.  

The proposed tax rate remains unchanged as follows:  $1.29 per thousand for Village residents and $1.71 per thousand for Town residents.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 p.m.
