Town of New Lebanon 2022 Tentative Town Budget

Please see here for the copy of the Town of New Lebanon’s 2022 Tentative Budget.  You can view it here in this email or on the Town website.

If you would like a printed copy, they are available in the Town Clerk’s office during open hours (Mon., Wed., Thurs. & Fri. 9:00am-5:00pm)

Please see the message below from the Town Supervisor, Tistrya Houghtling.

The town board intends on giving raises to our stellar employees this year.  We are currently working on a compensation plan where we are comparing many of our hourly/clerical rates to other towns in Columbia County.  In many of these positions we are the lowest paid in all the towns across the county.  There will be a proposal made to the town board regarding these rates and where to increase them to.  I put money aside in the budget for these increases if the town board decides to do them.  We will also be looking at potential raises for employees who scored highest on their evaluations.  This process will happen during budget meetings.  Since we don’t know yet which positions are increasing and by how much, I put the money in the budget in a holding line until the town board decides where it should go.  You will see these amounts specified by position in the preliminary budget.  Please reach out with any questions regarding this process and, as always, the budget workshops are open to the public to attend or view on town hall streams if you want to keep yourself in the loop on these conversations.
