The proposed 2018-19 budget for the Village of Clinton has come in with just under a 1 percent increase in the tax levy. A public hearing on that spending plan last week brought out no commentary either pro or con from the public, implying a tacit approval from the village residents.
“The village board has worked very hard on this budget and it’s very conservative,” Mayor John Crossley said. That budget saw no increase in pay to board members, he noted. A special meeting to approve the 2018-19 budget was set for Wednesday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in Lumbard Hall.
The Clinton Board of Trustees also held their official annual meeting that evening of April 2, kicking off with the results of the recent village elections that returned Crossley, Deputy Mayor Thomas Firsching, and Trustees Carrie Evans and Steven Bellona to their seats. Crossley said the voter turnout was “excellent.”
Official appointments during the annual meeting included Rozanne D’Acunto as clerk/treasurer; Marc Goldberg as deputy clerk/treasurer and water/sewer/tax collector; Robert Rockwell as superintendent of public works; Kevin and Michael Griffin as codes enforcement officers; Carol Hernandez as secretary to the Planning Board; and William Schmitt as village attorney.
NBT Bank was designated the official village fun depository, and The Waterville Times the official newspaper for the village.
