Oneida County Budget Passes

Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Oneida County budget passed by a vote of 19 to 7 today.

The 2012-2013 fiscal year budget amounts to more than $360,ooo,ooo, which includes the institution of the two percent property tax cap mandated by Governor Cuomo.

Homeowners will face a slight increase in their taxes for the next year.

The revised budget also includes concessions to keep the Rome DMV open with a smaller staff and freeze the pay rates of the Board of Election Commissioners.

County legislator Mike Hennessy voted against the budget, saying the two percent property tax cap is misleading.

Hennessy says the current method of meeting the two percent tax cap imposed by Governor Cuomo amounts to a gimmick meant to satisfy the state mandate and says ultimately the two percent tax increase is really 16.
