NEWBURGH – City Manager
Michael Ciaravino unveiled his proposed 2016 Newburgh budget, which includes
a modest decrease.
The general fund budget comes in at $44.3 million and aims at protecting city workers and programs, he said.
“For the second consecutive year we are proposing to reduce the tax levy and building upon the foundation established with the 2015 budget, we continue to make great financial strides in controlling expenses while improving core services to the residents of our city,” Ciaravino said Tuesday night.
Property taxes would decrease by pennies under the proposed spending plan, which must now be reviewed by the city council before it is adopted at the end of November.
