This story was published prior to the Nov. 28 Town Board meeting, at which the board approved changes to the tentative budget and presented the town clerk with the 2018 preliminary budget. Those details, as well as any announced public hearings, will appear in a separate, future article.

NORTH SALEM, N.Y.-The Town Board has spent most of November pouring over Supervisor Warren Lucas’ tentative $9.4 million municipal budget for 2018 and it’s still going.

In its current form, the tentative spending plan calls for a general tax rate increase of 2.5 percent, which is under the tax cap.

The budget comprises the general fund and highway spending plans, which all residents in town pay for. The budget also includes seven district budgets which are paid for by those who live in each specific taxing district. The district budgets include Peach Lake Sewer District, Sunset Ridge, Candlewood and Croton Falls Water districts, the Purdys and Croton Falls lighting district and Candlewood Lake Park district.

“The budget is not yet complete,”  Lucas emphasized. Additionally, changes have been made since he initially presented it to the board Nov. 7, he said.
