The Town of Greece has released the proposed budget for the town which includes a reduction in the property tax rate from $6.285 per $1,000 in property value to $6.225 per $1,000 in property value, a 6 cent reduction. 

“This is a continuation of our efforts to steadily reduce the town tax rate in the Town of Greece. Our tax rate is now lower than it was ten years ago, and we continue to keep our costs under control. We’ve paid off the debt on the Town Hall and the Library as well. Everything we have done has been to ensure the proper management of town finances. We fully expect to continue on this course for the foreseeable future,” Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich said. 

In addition to the proposed 2020 budget tax decrease, the capital plan includes the continuation of the commitment to public infrastructure. Over $2.25 million in cash will be put towards road maintenance and improvements. It includes additional improvements to the service mall area, an allocation for park and playground upgrades and a commitment to green energy initiatives. Most important to note perhaps is there is no borrowing for any capital improvements.
