2018 Budget Hearing and 2019 Budget Proposal

On October 1st, 2018 the Board of Supervisors met with the Town Electors and worked to develop options for the budget for 2019.  It was proposed that two options be presented:

Option A utilizes the allowable levy with the Mount Horeb Joint Area Fire Department building loan and the existing loans.

Option B requires the Town to exceed the levy limits in order to generate funds to allow for the purchase of a replacement for the Orange Peterbilt  truck, with a carry-over amount that would be available for road repairs if necessary.

Both Options have been corrected for the property revaluation being in 2020, rather than 2019.  The areas highlighted in yellow are those that have changed from the 2018 Budget.

Option A: 2019 Budget DRAFT option A

Option B: 2019 Budget DRAFT option B

The Electors will have the opportunity to submit comments and vote on these options at the Budget Hearing, October 29th, 2018 beginning at 7:30pm.
