The Town of Greece released their proposed budget for the town which reduces taxes again this year. The proposed rate decrease will go down from the current $6.33 per $1,000 in property value to $6.29 per $1,000 property value. This will be the 4th year that the town tax rate has decreased.

Efforts to reduce taxes included not only focusing on reducing our costs, but also finding ways to develop new revenue streams and enhance current ones. The Town is now seeing the benefits of the cost-cutting measures.

The proposed 2019 budget and capital plan includes:

·A strong $1,000,000 below the tax cap.

·Enhancements and expansion of recreational programs at the Community and Senior Center.

·The planned rehabilitation of another park shelter.

·Improvements to our Town Hall Service Mall.

·A plan to install permanent generators in the remaining town facilities to ensure uninterrupted operation during emergencies.

·The final debt payment on the Greece Public Library facility.

“None of the improvements we are proposing will use any debt to finance them. Because we took action in 2014, we are able to finance more improvements through cash rather than debt. This continues to keep the town’s finances on a sound long-term footing,” Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich said.
