Bethlehem water sales drop

"There's no additional money coming out of the fund balance," Cunningham told The Spotlight.

When asked by Councilman Kyle Kotary about future projections, Traylor told him that Sept. 30 numbers will show the third-quarter numbers, but that if the numbers are bad, Bethlehem "may need to do a third-quarter mid-budget cut."

The town is currently in the middle of workshops for the 2010 town budget, which began Monday, Aug. 17, and have continued throughout August. They were originally started by Cunningham after he was appointed supervisor, and he has continued the practice through his first term of office.

The final budget workshop will be held Monday, Sept. 21, at the Town Hall auditorium from 6 to 8 p.m. The workshop will include the comptroller's review of preliminary tax rates and overall budgets as well as the comptroller presentations on salary; heath insurance; fringe benefits; and revenue assumptions.

A tentative 2010 town budget will be presented at the Wednesday, Sept. 23, Town Board meeting, and a public hearing on the budget will be held Oct. 28 before the board votes on the adoption of the final new budget on Nov. 10.
