Supervisor Forbes asked if there were any questions regarding the preliminary budget for 2020.

He explained that the budget would not be voted on that night because the Town was waiting for the Homer Fire District to adopt a resolution overriding the tax levy cap.  Since the Fire District and the Village had not settled on a budget for 2020 at the time of the adoption of the preliminary budget, the amount of the levy for the Fire District had changed.  He said that as soon as the Fire District adopts the resolution, the Town Board will hold a special meeting to approve the budget.

Forbes said that as for the Town portion of the budget, no changes have been made since the preliminary budget was approved in October.

As there were no further comments or questions, the public hearing was adjourned at 6:40 p.m.
