GOSHEN – The Orange County 2023 budget, proposed by County Executive Steven Neuhaus, comes in at $890 million, up from the $813 million 2022 spending plan.
He unveiled the new budget at a meeting of the County Association of Mayors and Town Supervisors Tuesday night.
It includes the lowest county tax rate in the last 46 years, Neuhaus told his municipal colleagues.
“The average house in Orange County – household, family – will see a tax cut of roughly $67, some seeing a lot more, some seeing less,” he told Mid-Hudson News. “But, the average household will see a tax cut of $67.”
The budget, which requires county legislature approval, includes less employees than when Neuhaus first took office in 2014, has a strong financial status and sets aside reserve funds, he said.
