Darby McCarty, Chairperson of the Community Council stated following the Community Council meeting, “It was very informative and sobering to hear the report from our staff, county and town officials outlining the current funding shortfalls facing our local governmental units. It appears that from the information provided the current property tax caps will result in the Town facing a reduction of $76,000 in revenue this year on top of the current tight cash flow issue.” Tom Orman, Vice Chairperson of the Community Council commented, “The Community Council needs to work closely with all governmental units in the near future concerning these funding shortfall issues. The recent “sticker shock” area residents experienced with their property tax notices is a prime example why the public should stay involved in local issues.”
