Just as I have been predicting, the loss of revenues from the landfill will fall squarely on the taxpayers of Southbridge
The budget presentation for the next fiscal year proposes to eliminate $920,000 from landfill revenues that the town relies upon to finance its operating budget. And how is this accomplished? Simple – Gross Increase at Projected Tax Levy for the next fiscal year increase by $994,429.
At the same time, when adjusted for the increased tax rate, the contribution from new growth is projected to decline by almost 20%.
