FAITH — The Faith Town Board of Aldermen will hold a public hearing for the 2013-14 proposed budget at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday.
The board meets at the Faith town hall, at 100 N. Main St. After the public hearing, aldermen plan to talk about and take a vote on the budget.
The $590,265 budget proposal is very similar to the one the town passed last year. No tax increases are proposed, and no money would be appropriated from the fund balance.
If passed, about $192,000 would be allocated for general government and administration and about $262,000 would go toward public safety. The town would budget about $42,000 for transportation, $46,500 for environmental protection, $7,500 for culture and recreation and $40,000 for debt service and reserve.
The town expects to bring in about $255,000 in the current year’s property taxes and another $122,000 in the local option sales tax, among other revenues.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the Faith town board will hear a report from David Treme about the United Way campaign, hear an update on the street dance, discuss participation in the July 4th parade and discuss a Rufty-Holmes Senior Center summer fan program.
