Tax rate stable in 2018 Ontario County budget

Spending and the property tax levy are up in the 2018 Ontario County budget, although the tax rate will be the same as this year.

The $223.7 million budget was approved at last week’s Board of Supervisors meeting. Spending is up 2.31 percent over the 2017 budget of $218.7 million.

Next year’s tax levy is $57.3 million, a 3.2-percent increase over the 2017 levy of $55.5 million. County Administrator Mary Krause said the levy is compliant with the state tax cap.

The county property tax rate for 2018 will be $6.31 per $1,000 of assessed property value, the same rate as this year.

Krause credited the stable tax rate to a team approach by department heads, the county finance department, legislative committees and her office.
