Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente delivered his 2018 budget address today at the County Office Building.

For the fifth straight year there will be no tax increase in a budget totaling Four Hundred and Seven-point-Eight Million dollars.

Part of the budget includes a 6 year, $12 million flood mitigation program and 1-point-seven million dollars will be allocated to expand the 911 center in Oriskany.

Picente said, “This budget proposal has only 0.6 percent discretionary growth, and in total, over the past five years, the county budget has barely grown two percent. This fiscally conservative approach has allowed us to run government for five years in a row without raising taxes while investing heavily in this community.”

The address also included expanded programs for libraries, a veterans legal clinic and a reorganizing the Department of Social Services’ legal department.

The first public hearing on the proposed budget will take place on October 11th.
