Civic duty to observe budget


To The Editor:
Are you really concerned about your property taxes? The Middletown Town Board is holding a public hearing on the town budget on Wednesday, Nov. 9, the day after Election Day, at 7 p.m. at the Middletown Town Hall on Route 28, Margaretville.

Attend this important event and make your views about the amount you are paying for property taxes known and insist on the board reducing the cost of local government and your taxes. Also insist on clarity and transparency in the budget so that true proposed expenses are explained clearly.
A copy of the preliminary budget can be obtained prior to the meeting from Russell Schebesta, town clerk at town hall.

Let’s all do our civic duty this year.
