Altamont adopts $2.4 M budget for next year; V’ville Trustees to vote on proposed $2.64 M budget on April 23

ALTAMONT and VOORHEESVILLE — At its monthly meeting in March, the Altamont Board of Trustees voted unanimously to adopt a $2.39 million budget for next year. While down the road, the Voorheesville Village Board will vote, on April 23, whether or not to adopt a proposed $2.64 million budget for 2019-20.

Voorheesville’s proposed budget includes a minor increase in the tax rate, from $1.26 per $1,000 of assessed value to $1.29 per $1,000 of assessed value. In addition, village residents also pay into New Scotland’s townwide general and highway funds at $1.45 per $1,000 of assessed value.

The proposed budget keeps the village under state-set levy limit.

Altamont’s budget is up about $69,000 over last year and is also below the state-set levy limit. The village’s property-tax rate for next year will be down slightly from this year. For 2019-20, the rate will be $2.72 per $1,000 of assessed value; this year, residents pay $2.73 per $1,000 of assessed value.
