Budget Updates

After numerous budget workshops and a public hearing, the Village Board of Trustees adopted the 2016-17 budget during its April board meeting. Documents detailing all income and expenses for the 2016-17 fiscal year (beginning June 1) along with a five-year overview of top line rates and totals are available below.

The big news is village tax rates will be dropping 87¢ per $1,000 in assessed property value, or 5.05%. The village uses $100,000 to represent the typical property assessment, which translates this decrease into a savings of $87 for the property owner. This reduction is the result of tremendous work by both the board and village employees to reduce expenses throughout the budget, but particularly through innovative reorganizations of personnel in all divisions of village administration.

The board’s thorough review of the village budget also identified where future revenues will fall short of projected future expense increases. For example, the village’s aging waste water treatment plant requires increased capital investment. To address this, while water rates are unchanged, the 2016-17 budget includes an 11¢ increase (per 1,000 gallons) in sewer service. The typical village household uses 15,000 gallons of water quarterly, which translates this increase to $1.65 per quarter, or $6.60 for the year.

The Alfred Village Board is focused on making Alfred a desirable community to live, work and play and will continue to explore ways to make the village sustainable, economical and valuable.
