ONEONTA, N.Y. - The City of Oneonta approved its 2019 budget Tuesday evening, a budget that doesn’t include any property tax increases.

The $22.9M budget originally included a 2% tax levy increase, but the council was able to reduce expenses without sacrificing any services. They did this by removing $80,000.00 to replace an emergency generator at the public safety building. City representatives said that money will instead come from the city’s fund balance.

A $50,000.00 study of the needs at various city-owned facilities was also removed from budget. The study is being referred to the operations planning and evaluation committee for further review.
