A public hearing on Yates County’s 2021 budget will be held this week.
It will take place Thursday at 6 p.m., but residents will be pleased that County Administrator Nonie Flynn was able to hold the line.
The Yates County Legislature has already voted to accept the proposed budget after making some minor tweaks.
The bottom line is a zero increase over the 2020 tax levy. In fact, the tax rate itself will decrease by $5.89 per thousand. In the process, general fund expenditures were reduced by a net of 7.65% in the budget.
Earlier in the year Flynn noted that the budget process was a months-long activity that was only successful because of transparency and working together.
