Glenville Supervisor Chris Koetzle is proposing a $18.5 million budget with a 3.4 percent tax levy increase, which is about $68,000 below the state cap.

The full details of the proposed budget are available below. A full story on the proposed budget is available HERE.

The appropriations include $3.6 million for general operations, $3.4 million for the Highway Department and $4.8 million for town operations outside the village. The rest of the budget is made up of special use funds, including water, sewer, fire and lighting districts.

If ultimately adopted by the Town Board, the average Glenville resident with a home assessed at $173,000 would see their taxes increase by $20 to $591. Scotia residents with an average home assessed at $130,000 would see their taxes increase by $2 to $109.

“It’s a solid budget. I’m feeling very positive about the direction we’re going in,” Koetzle said.
