DERBY >> Residents can weigh in at a public hearing tonight on a proposed $39 million budget for fiscal year 2015-16 that holds the line on taxes.
The Board of Apportionment and Taxation will hold the hearing at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
During its meeting May 5, the tax board approved a preliminary budget of $39,072,420. Chairman James Butler said that, while the bottom line is slightly up from the current $38.3 million budget, the current tax rate of 35.74 mills set last year would remain the same under the preliminary budget.
Mayor Anita Dugatto lauded the tax board, as well as all city department heads, for keeping their budgets reasonable and for not hitting taxpayers’ pocketbooks too hard.
