Monticello, NY – Formal public hearings about the proposed 2023 Sullivan County Budget have been set for December 6 at 5 p.m. and December 8 at 11 a.m. in the Hearing Room of the Government Center, 100 North Street, Monticello. Written comment is being accepted by Clerk of the Legislature AnnMarie Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 100 North Street, Monticello, NY 12701.
“As presented to the Legislature by County Manager Josh Potosek, the Tentative 2023 County Budget eliminates the Solid Waste Access Fee and aims to keep taxes level while not reducing services or laying off employees,” Legislature Chairman Robert A. Doherty noted. “My colleagues and I may modify that proposal before we adopt the Budget in mid-December. In the meantime, residents and taxpayers are welcome to let us know what they think of the budget at these upcoming hearings, or via email to our Clerk.”
Legislators will discuss portions of the budget at a special meeting on November 29 at 9 a.m. in the Hearing Room and will likely continue such discussions at regular committee meetings on December 1 and 8. All these meetings are open to the public and will be video-recorded & made available at https://sullivancountyny.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx.
