County executive plans budget forums
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro will host a series of town hall forums on his proposed 2017 county budget.
Molinaro will provide an overview of his proposed spending plan, engage in a discussion about the proposed budget and listen to issues of importance to those attending.
In October, Molinaro unveiled a $467 million spending plan would increase spending less than 1 percent, cut property taxes slightly, and includes additional funding for tourism promotion, economic development, expanded public transit from six to seven days per week, farmland protection funds, rebranding the Dutchess County Airport as Hudson Valley Regional Airport and creating an Aviation Maintenance Education Center at Dutchess Community College.
In Northern Dutchess, Molinaro will host a forum at 6 p.m. Nov. 29 at the Wilcox Memorial Town Hall, state Route 199, Milan.
