NORWICH – A small handful of supervisors questioned portions of the proposed budget for operating Chenango County’s government in 2010 before the full board formally adopted it last Wednesday.
Next year’s fiscal plan will levy $22,843,933 on taxpayers. It proposes an average tax rate decrease and a tax levy increase of less than 1 percent. The estimated average countywide tax rate is $13.75.
Town of Plymouth Supervisor Jerry Kreiner was the only supervisor who voted against the spending plan. The Republican scrutinized why Stop DWI funds collected locally were being used within the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services division of the Mental Hygiene Services Department.
