Glenville reviews preliminary budget

"Road repairs are a problem," said Quinn. "The town should be upgrading seven to 10 miles of roads per 100 miles; we've been doing three."

Quinn said although expenses are rising, money coming into the town remains static.

"Revenues are flat in the town; there's no significant change," said Quinn. "We are getting new developments in town, but they're not yet occupied homes, so they're not paying into the tax base. Ninety percent of our taxes are on private homes. There's no large commercial base in the town."

The board will continue to review the spending plan through Nov. 14, and vote on a final budget at its Nov. 15 regular meeting.""
