After cutting spending by $17 million last year, Ontario County Supervisors have taken a step toward normalcy with the passage of a $256 million spending plan for Fiscal 2022.
The Finger Lakes Times reports the budget increases spending by 6.5% over the current year.
Last year’s cuts were achieved partly through salary cuts and retirement incentives offered to long-time employees.
The tax levy, the total amount to be raised in taxes is up 4.7%. The tax rate will remain at $6.31 per thousand dollars of assessed valuation. The county will use about $5.5 million from its fund balance to balance the 2022 budget.
