GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Greenburgh's fire districts have released their budget proposals for 2013, with all three showing slight increases compared to last year's budgets.
Fairview Fire District is proposing the town's largest budget of $11,771,396, with the amount to be raised by property taxes up 4.95 percent from last year. The tax rate would increase by 6 percent.
If approved, the biggest increase for Fairview's budget would go toward state retirement costs. A public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. Oct. 16 at Fairview Fire Headquarters, 19 Rosemont Blvd., Greenburgh, to allow citizens to comment on the budget.
Hartsdale Fire District is proposing a budget of $10,393,454, which is about a 4.5 percent increase from last year. The proposal did not specify the tax rate.
If approved, $1.7 million of Hartsdale's budget would go toward state retirement costs.
Hartsdale's public hearing will be at 8 p.m. Oct. 16 at Hartsdale Fire District Station No. 2, 300 W. Hartsdale Ave., Hartsdale.
Greenville Fire District is proposing the town's smallest budget at $8,076,361 — a 2 percent increase from last year's. The tax rate would increase by 3.27 percent. A home assessed at $25,000 would pay $2,738 in taxes, an increase of $89.63.
