Details on Malta's proposed town budget
Malta town spending would drop next year, though spending for fire protection would rise, under the tentative 2013 town budget submitted Monday by Supervisor Paul Sausville.
Total town spending would be just under $8.6 million, down 4 percent from the 2012 budget. Fire protection spending, however, would increase by 4 percent to $1.66 million.

Between a 76-cent-per-$1,000 fire protection tax, 14-cent-per-$1,000 library tax and 1-cent ambulance volunteer incentive tax, town officials said a house assessed at $250,000 would be responsible for about $230 in taxes.
“We have no general fund tax for the 12th straight year,” Sausville said. “The only town taxes we have are those approved by voters.” The town relies on county sales tax and mortgage recording tax for most of its revenue.
