BOONVILLE — The town of Boonville’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2016-2017 will be presented at a public hearing on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Harvey E. Smith Municipal Building. The public is invited to attend to learn more about the proposed budget for the upcoming year.
The proposed 2016-2017 fiscal year budget is presented without a tax increase, leaving the rate at $0.46 per $100 valuation of property.
“The town of Boonville is committed to striving for the highest level of public service while preserving, protecting, and enhancing the quality of life in the community. In order to accomplish these goals, we must maintain strong financial health. The priorities that are reflected in the budget include economic development, façade improvement grant, water and sewer infrastructure improvement, and a partnership with a local property owner to build a park in Downtown Boonville. As a result of these priorities, the proposed budget does include a minimal increase in water and sewer rates,” said Interim Town Administrator Sarah Harris.
