The Village of Honeoye Falls Board of Trustees along with village staff have been working over the past 3 months on reviewing the village budget.  As it is each year this review includes working with our emergency services departments as well as the Highway/DPW along with gathering projections from outside sources which aids the village board in determining the financial requirements for the upcoming year, but equally important projecting future needs of the village both financially and for specific needs. 
Three budget workshops (open to the public) were scheduled and completed.  The budget is finished and prepared for public hearing scheduled for April 3, 2017 @ 6:00 PM.  This public hearing precedes the Annual Meeting which is scheduled for 6:30 PM.
While the Village continues to be fairly healthy financially; costs continue to rise specifically within our health care, workers comp. and retirement areas.  We have had to decrease the amount of funding that we have traditionally put into capital reserves which is concerning as that often means we will have to finance more equipment purchases rather than paying at time of purchase
The proposed village budget is available at the Village Office for review.  At this time, there is a projected 5.42% tax rate increase which will be used to offset the projected budget shortfalls.   This does not include any planned capital savings additions.  The stipend for the Village Mayor, currently the lowest in Monroe County, as well as the Village Trustees was not increased.  (The proposed increase on average would increase the tax payment on a property assessed at $150,000. by $16.62.  The increase to a property assessed at $200,000. would increase by $22.16.)
Questions regarding the Village Budget may be directed to the Village Office @ 624-1711 or the Mayor at (mayor@villageofhoneoyefalls.org) and may be reviewed at the Village Office as well.   As a reminder, the public hearing to approve the village budget is Monday, April 3rd at 6:00 PM.
