2016 Town Budget

2016 Town Budget

Town Park

Work has begun on the renovation of our Town Park. The highway guys will be there this week tearing up the old tennis court & fence so that we’ll be ready for the new court to go in the first week in November.  We’re excited that this project has finally begun and looking forward to it being completed in the spring. In the mean time we apologize for any inconvenience.

Due to rising programming costs, effective with your November billing statement, pricing will be adjusted for the Broadcast TV Surcharge from $5.25 to $6.05. This reflects charges assessed to Charter by broadcast TV stations.

The following packages will be adjusted:
Digi Tier 1 a la carte will increase from $10.00 to $12.00
Digi Tier 2 a la carte will increase from $10.00 to $12.00

AUSTERLITZ — Residents can look forward to a new Town Hall soon and they won’t have to travel much farther to get there.

The new building, formerly the Methodist Episcopal Church, was bought by the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation for the town this year. It sits next to the current Town Hall on Route 203.
