Johnson City Trustees Chop Away at Budget

Officials in the Village of Johnson City are reviewing the tentative budget for the upcoming fiscal year with the goal of trimming back some of the spending increases.

Lawmakers met March 26th to discuss the $17 million proposal that hit the deck with a 9.5% property tax increase.

During the first of three budget worksessions, trustees cut overtime for the police department by $15,000 and worked to streamline clerical staff duties.

Trustees had already voted to circumvent the 2% tax levy cap imposed by new york state, although officials said the move was made as a precautionary measure.

The board meets for another worksession March 28th.

Mayor Greg Deemie says he expects the budget to be adopted April 16th after a yet to be scheduled pubic hearing.
