Budget planning and preparation has been a top priority at Irondequoit Town Hall these past few months where it impacts all phases of our residents’ lives. Last Friday, the Irondequoit Town Board took another critical step in the process by voting on and passing a preliminary budget. If adopted as proposed, the spending plan would lower the tax rate from the 2023 rate of $6.41 to $4.69 per thousand of assessed value, a potential savings for taxpayers.
“I’m pleased to announce that in a bipartisan effort, the Irondequoit Town Board approved a preliminary budget which would lower the tax rate to $4.69 per thousand of assessed value,” said Irondequoit Town Supervisor Rory Fitzpatrick. “I have received several inquiries regarding details of taxes for next year. We have mapped out an illustration of what this would look like for town taxpayers. It is important that citizens provide input throughout the process, and they will have an opportunity to do so on November 9th. Following public input, the budget adoption vote will take place on November 14th,” added Fitzpatrick.
Here’s an illustration of what that looks like for town taxpayers.
