Valley Viewpoints: Granby budget

by Rose Anthony, Granby

Nov. 7 at 6 p.m., a public hearing will be held on the Granby Town budget for next year. I believe each and every taxpayer should attend and speak your mind about this budget. Our budget officer prepared an excellent budget, giving more money for road repairs than any time in history, yet keeping taxes low. In fact, the budget proposed would lower taxes around two cents per thousand, which is great.

Our town board did away with the decrease, giving raises as much as two percent. Our supervisor, Mr. Williamson, is for the people. After hearing about those on Social Security only getting a 1.3 percent raise next year, our supervisor feels it is extremely important to keep taxes low.

Please, each and every one of you, take an interest in local government business. I hope to see you all on the 7th at 6 p.m. We will see who votes for what, and who is for the people of Granby. Then we will know who to vote for at the next election.
