If you live in Cheektowaga, your taxes may be going up. Not a lot, but they still may be going up. Town Supervisor Diane Benczkowski submitted the budget to the town earlier this month and will soon be voted on.

The public hearing for the budget is coming up on October 23 at 7 PM at town hall.

Here are the details from Channel 2:

The proposed budget totals $92,639,171, an increase of $1,288,838 from 2018. The tax levy would increase 1.1%, which is under the 2% NYS mandated tax cap. That amounts to an increase of $24.66 per $100,000.

 

“Difficult choices always have to be made during the budget process and I thank our department heads for listening to the recommendations of the Budget Advisory Committee,” said Cheektowaga Supervisor Diane Benczkowski in a press release. “We are constantly striving to find the perfect balance between providing the quality services our residents need, want and deserve with the realities of ever increasing costs. In the future, I will continue to seek new partnerships and collaborations to bolster the services we currently offer while reducing the burden on our taxpayers", according to WGRZ.
