Budget Ordinance

Our FY 05-06 Budget Ordinance was approved 4-1 (Outz voting against). Our Real Property tax rate will drop from 64.64 cents per $100 to 59.7 cents per 100. As a result of revaluation this will still generate the necessary revenue to proceed with "must do" capital improvements. The bottom line amounts to a 4 cent tax increase and you can review the expenditure details on the Chatham website
