By Marty DonnellyGood news for Andes. At our special town board meeting held on October 29th, 2007 the following objectives were met:
The 2008 Town budget, reflecting a 2% increase, was passed after the public hearing. 1.5% was from the general fund.
The Town Board also passed a local law that will increase the senior citizen property tax exemption to the maximum allowed by law. We increased the Veteran’s tax exemption to the formula allowed.
For more details on the tax exemptions, you may speak to the Assessor, Tina Moshier, 845-676-3737. These changes will be effective on January 1st, 2008.
