New Milford Mayor proposes budget with tax decrease

The New Milford Town Council and Board of Finance still need to approve a budget to send to voters, but they now have a proposal before them.  New Milford residents could see a slight decrease in their taxes in the coming year's budget.  Mayor David Gronbach has proposed a $36.5 million dollar municipal budget. 


A proposed $62.2 million school budget and a $1.6 million capital budget brings the total proposal to $100.3 million.  That is a .57 percent decrease in taxes. 


Gronbach says they went line by line through every department and cut out expenditures that were deemed excessive.  More than $4 million in departmental requests were cut from the proposed budget to bring the spending increase to about $340,000. 


Among the cuts are eliminating the executive secretary position in the Mayor's office and leaving two police department vacancies unfilled.  Gronbach says the police vacancies come on a recommendation from the Police Chief.
