County Budget

The schedule for public hearings on the Rensselaer County budget is set: here is the press release with the dates and times.
The 2009 budget continues a positive trend for Rensselaer County, following an upgrade in the county’s financial rating by respected analysts Standard & Poor’s and a report of a surplus at the end of the 2007 fiscal year. Unfortunately, state mandates have increased to the point where 90 cents out of every county tax dollar are used to pay for mandated costs.
Here's the link to the tentative budget.
