No tax increase in proposed Newark village budget

Village residents will see no increase in taxes under the proposed 2019-20 budget.

A public hearing on the $11.1 million spending plan is set for 6 p.m. tonight in the second-floor Village/Town Court room of the Municipal Building at 100 E. Miller St.

The budget calls for a tax rate of $13.43 per $1,000 of assessed value, the same as the current $10.7 million spending plan. Mayor Jonathan Taylor noted that it’s “the sixth time in seven years with a zero percent tax increase.”

The budget features a $4.21 million tax levy — the amount to be raised by property taxes — which is about $1,000 less than the current levy. Taylor credited department heads for holding the line on expenses as part of an effort to keep spending down.

Under the proposed budget, Taylor will receive a salary of $20,412, same as the current fiscal year. Trustees Bob Bendix, Stu Blodgett, Al Schober and Rebecca Vermeulen each will earn $11,707, also the same as the current budget.
