Draft budget proposes 24% property tax rate decrease


The first draft of the borough budget for next year includes a 24% reduction in the property tax rate, authorizes nearly $7 million in general fund spending and reflects recent rate increases for water, sewage, power, trash pickup and harbor fees.

Good plans to investigate the feasibility of these suggestions, which may be reflected in subsequent budget drafts.
