2023 has come to an end! Our 2024 budget has been adopted and once again we are happy to say we have no increase in our Town wide tax levies. We have stayed below our State mandated tax cap and have a buffer should things change in coming years.

Construction has begun on our upgrade to our Town Hall entrances and after what we hope is a short winter break, we should see completion in late spring. Please excuse our mess while we make long needed improvements.

Our Water Department has seen a significant reduction in the amount of water usage for a couple of our large customers. This has forced us to reevaluate our rates and you will be seeing a rate adjustment in your February billing.

We have been having discussions with the Broome County Health Department concerning the Tobacco Free Broome/Tioga Program. We held a community information meeting in December to understand the issues of tobacco use and the effects of vaping in the community. Be looking for more information as we consider Local regulations to complement existing State regulations.

So far, the winter weather has been mild compared to past years. Hopefully this will continue, and we can avoid the costs of large amounts of sand and salt.  

Look for our newsletter mailing in the spring as we announce our clean up day and highlight the activities in all our departments.

Please feel free to contact any Town Board Member with questions or suggestions. All input is accepted.

I hope you have a safe and Happy New Year!

Gary
