Measured 33 feet from the center line of the road on either side is considered the town "right-a-way" and part of the town. Anything placed within this area can be asked to be removed by the Town if considered inappropriate. Property owners normally maintain this area in the front of their property to add to the aesthetics of their property.
The cost for heat and electricity and custodial care as well as depreciation of the building, etc. There have been incidences where poor cleaning has been done or damage, and to collect "after-the fact" is hard to do, thus the deposit.
Held the THIRD Tuesday of April, a complete financial report is given for the past year. The Chairman also recaps the past year and gives a legislative update. Typically there is no agenda and Town residents may discuss any topic they
feel necessary pertaining to the Town. The Town Board cannot make any decisions at this meeting, but rather take the recommendations and include them on a monthly board meeting agenda if feasible.
The Town Board has a budget workshop held in October and then a public hearing held in November. Research is done as to expenditures for the previous year and anticipated amounts needed for the coming year considering future projects such as roads, or large purchases, etc. Consideration must be given to monies received from the State and Federal governments and whether they are increased, decreased or discontinued.
There is a contingency fund to transfer monies from or if another account has access or is not being used. Accounts for projects not completed are rolled over into the new budget for use as payment in the next year. Access monies are also held in accounts to use by the Town where needed and assist in holding the Town tax down. The town holds these monies in CD's to eliminate the need to borrow addition funds.
Tax bills are prepared by the County with Federal, State, County, Town and school figures. "Town tax" is minimal and the board tries to keep it the same or change slightly. Tax increases are usually due to school and County tax figures being increased.
Examine your tax bill for clarification or ask the treasurer to point out the various amounts.

The County covers a much larger area and the individual Towns assist in caring out laws, statues, and handling calls. Many times the Town has final say on some manners as well as being more specific on the requirements. The County usually has jurisdiction in most matters though, so it is best to follow procedures entailed by each.
