The to­tal bud­get of Barn­ston West for the up­com­ing year is $975,271. Prop­erty tax rates stay the same at .75 per $100 eval­u­a­tion which in­cludes the bill for the Sureté du Que­bec. Fees for do­mes­tic waste will go up $3.57 bring­ing the to­tal to $246.70 per house­hold, and the fee for garbage col­lec­tion in the agri­cul­tural sec­tor will go up by around $20 to to­tal $225.

Dixville taxes will rise by about 7%. The res­i­den­tial tax rate is go­ing from .72 to .77 per $100 eval­u­a­tion while the do­mes­tic waste fee is go­ing up $15 to to­tal $130 per house­hold. Re­cy­cling fees will stay the same at $37 per house­hold. The to­tal bud­get for 2011 is $1.3 mil­lion.

Res­i­dents in Comp­ton are fac­ing a tax hike, es­pe­cially if they are served by the town’s wa­ter sys­tem and other ser­vices. Prop­erty taxes are go­ing from .825 to .855 per $100. This rep­re­sents a slight in­crease for res­i­dents out­side the vil­lage’s net­work of about $16.50 for a prop­erty worth $200,000. A prop­erty of the same value that is hooked up to the town’s wa­ter sys­tem will see an in­crease of about $170 on their tax bill. Fees for do­mes­tic waste col­lec­tion went down slightly. The salary of the mayor has in­creased by about $2000 to to­tal $15,000, while the salaries of the coun­cil­lors, in­clud­ing ex­penses, have in­creased to $5000 from $4,368.

Mart­inville’s to­tal bud­get for 2011 is $575,088. Its tax rate, which in­cludes the po­lice bill, stays the same at .95 per $100 eval­u­a­tion. The fee for do­mes­tic waste stays the same, at $178.83 per house­hold, as does the re­cy­cling fee at $50.55 per house­hold. Work to the wa­ter sys­tem in the heart of the vil­lage, ex­pected to cost around $700,000, is slated for this year.
