SUPERVISOR'S MESSAGE ON THE 2023 BUDGET:

As we know, the inflation rate is above 8% this year. Gasoline, diesel fuel, and heating fuels are far above 8%. We use Kero for some of our heating needs and Winter Mix for our trucks. Yesterday Kero was approaching seven (7) dollars per gallon. This and all the ancillary costs to operate our two (2) Highway Garages has caused a dilemma for our 2023 Budget. We have done our best to weigh the needs to operate our Town Governmental requirements and to also lessen the pain to our Taxpayers. I can see having to use some of our accrued Fund Balance to fill the shortfall due to these inflationary times during the 2023 budget year.

HIGHWAY: Report from Highway Foreman Kyle Brewer. - New truck update - Have done spot paving on the Millbrook side. Prep for winter.

RISING COMMUNITY RECONSTRUCTION PROGRAM: Communications with Bill B. regarding the deposit of funds in that Acct.
