East Hills approves $11.2M budget
The Village of East Hills has approved an $11,169,648 budget, which reflects a decrease in the tax levy of less than 1 percent.
The overall budget is up by $6,216 over last year, and the tax levy fell $78,686.85. There is no increase in the tax rate for the third consecutive year, village officials said.
Mayor Michael Koblenz wrote in a news release that the village “will continue to provide the finest country-club facilities with the highest standards of services for all of our residents.”
William Burton, village attorney, noted the village did not add staff.
Koblenz wrote: “We will not proceed with any proposal that will potentially cost the village sums amounting to $700,000 or more without State or Federal grants,” referring to projects that involve replacing, upgrading or demolishing facilities.
