Proposed Sullivan County budget

Sullivan County Acting Manager Joshua Potosek recently issued a statement on the county budget. He wrote, “Sullivan County has faced extreme budgetary challenges through the financial crisis over the past five years. As we approach the conclusion of 2013, the county is slowly beginning to improve financially. This proposed budget is the first since the beginning of the recession that does not include drastic service cuts, layoffs, exorbitant tax increases, or the use of fund balance in the general fund, but instead maintains existing service levels and modestly builds capacity in a few key strategic areas.”  Read more

Fending off tax certiorari; Ya gotta spend money to save money

There are a number of property owners in Sullivan County who think that their tax assessments are higher than they should be and therefore they are paying more than their fair share of property taxes. Among those are the owners of Kohls Distribution Center in Wurtsboro; Walmart and Kutshers Resort in the Town of Thompson; and Eagle Creek Companies, which owns the system of reservoirs in Bethel, Lumberland and Forestburgh.  Read more
