With a local economy that has been on the rise the past few years, the City of Middletown is looking for ways to maintain the flourishing within its community. An agreed upon budget among mayor and council is the foundation to meet that goal. This coming Tuesday is the date to determine the line items of the city’s municipal budget.
Middletown Mayor Joseph DeStefano has proposed a $55.4 million budget, which would minimally increase local taxes. A house assessed at $30,000 would see less than a $10 increase. The overall budget hike is just over a million dollars from last year. DeStefano, like any mayor trying to balance expenses against municipal services and advances, is putting forward a plan to continue Middletown’s progress. Tuesday is the deadline for New York cities to have their budgets set.
