By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone
I hope everyone is doing well! Despite the Groundhog’s prediction, we are only a few weeks away from the start of spring and warmer weather.
I would like to briefly discuss the budget my colleagues and I on the Board of Chosen Freeholders introduced during our meeting on February 8th.
As it currently stands, County taxes would increase by only 1 percent. However, I cannot stress enough that this budget is still a working draft with the opportunity, rather the goal, to make additional cuts to keep the tax levy as flat as possible. If the budget stayed the same and was adopted as-is, this would be the first slight tax increase in seven years while continuing to keep the great services and infrastructure improvements throughout the County.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Monmouth County Budget, Monmouth County News, Tom Arnone | Tags: Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Middlesex County Freeholders, Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Monmouth County Budget, Monmouth County News, Property Taxes | 1 Comment »
