Proposed Smithtown Town Budget Shows Slight Tax Increase

If approved, locals could expect an increase of less than $50 this year.

Proposed Smithtown Town Budget Shows Slight Tax Increase

Town Supervisor Patrick Vecchio said Monday he will present the proposed town budget for 2013 of $103 million to the town board at Tuesday's board meeting.

The tax increase to locals would be $46.83 a year, according to Vecchio.

Although the proposed town budget for 2013 is $103 million, Vecchio warned that there are many funds of the proposed budget that taxpayers do not pay taxes on, fixed costs the town does not have the authority to adjust.

Vecchio said an overview of the proposed budget and brief explanation of increases, what the tax dollars would be paying for and more would be on the town's website by the end of Monday. 

A public hearing for the proposed budget will be held at the Oct. 25 meeting, set for 7 p.m. at the Eugene A. Cannataro Smithtown Senior Citizen Center. The proposed budget has to be adopted by the town board by Nov. 20.
