The North Haven Village Board announced on Tuesday night that it will begin the first of its budget work sessions on Wednesday, March 14 at 3 p.m. According to village clerk, Georgia Welch, the tentative budget — subject to revision — is for $1,327,800 for an overall budget increase of 1.38 percent. Based on the state’s formula for calculating how much more it can gather through its property tax levy, the village could raise its spending by just over four-percent, said Welch on Tuesday night.
In addition to its budget work session next Wednesday, the board will also meet on Thursday, March 20 and Thursday, March 29, also at 3 p.m., to discuss the 2012-2013 budget. It is expected to adopt its tentative budget on April 3 during its regular monthly meeting at 5 p.m.
