AMSTERDAM-Supervisor Thomas DiMezza said today no new taxes will be implemented for the town's 2013 budget, but there will be fewer budget increases for some departments.
The proposed highway tax for the town, introduced by DiMezza, was struck down Wednesday night during a meeting of the Town Board.
The board met Monday to balance the 2013 budget proposal and confirmed the proposed tax would not be included.
The highway tax would have levied about $275,000 to be specifically applied toward the highway fund.
DiMezza said the town does expect to receive more money from sales tax in 2013. He also said the library fund will be left at $10,000.
