NORWICH – The Town of Norwich’s 2008 budget passed unopposed following a special public hearing Thursday.
The floor was open to the public at approximately 7 p.m. and after no one chose to comment on the proposed budget, the hearing was concluded by 7:10 p.m.
“We are proud of the budget. We seem to have a grasp on the town’s expenses and a good flow in revenue,” said Town of Norwich Supervisor David Law.
The budget will see an overall increase of 4 percent for the upcoming year, but, due to the growth and increased revenue in the area in the past year, residents will actually pay less in taxes.
