Members of the public will have not one, but two chances to give their two cents on the proposed 2014 budget on Wednesday.
The public will have a chance to weigh in at 4 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. on Supervisor Scott Russell’s $41.6 million spending plan, which includes a 1 percent spending increase over the current year and would result in a 1.17 percent tax hike.
The budget calls for $23 million to be raised through taxes, according to Mr. Russell’s budget statement. The supervisor proposes using $2.4 million in reserves – down from last year’s $2.7 million.
Mr. Russell and Town Comptroller John Cushman will discuss the proposed spending plan as well as the budgeting process.
Both public hearings on the budget will be held on November 6 in the Town Hall meeting room.
