Reminder: Hunterdon County Freeholder's Budget Meeting This Evening, April 23rd, 8pm
A reminder that the Hunterdon County Freeholder's 2009 budget meeting will be held this evening, Thursday, April 23rd, at 8:00 PM, in theFreeholders’ Meeting Room, MainStreetCounty Complex, Building #1, Second Floor, 71 Main Street, Flemington
The proposed budget features a tax-rate increase of 1-cent per $100 of assessed valuation, even though HunterdonCounty currently has a budget surplus, and even though the Freeholders say they are committed to cutting costs.
According to the Hunterdon County Democrat, the tax rate is being increased "to 28.28 cents per $100". I take that to mean the rate is currently 27.28 cents per $100, so based on these numbers this works out to a 3.6 percent increase.
