Mayfield budget increases tax rate

MAYFIELD – The 2014 town budget includes a slight tax increase.

Town Supervisor Richard Argotsinger said the Town Board adopted the budget unanimously.

The budget, totaling $1.88 million, shows a slight decrease from 2013’s $1.9 million budget.

According to Argotsinger, the tax rate for 2014 is $1.07 per $1,000 of assessed value, a 5-cent increase from 2013.

“We are pretty much bare bones,” Argotsinger said.
