VILLAGE FINANCIAL RATING Each year Standard & Poors reviews the Village's financial condition in order to reaffirm or adjust the rating for the Village's long term debt. Most recently, Sandy Albro, Village Clerk & Treasurer, Mayor Bernie Ryba, and the Village's financial adviser, David Tanner, participated in two conference calls with S&P to discuss the Village's financial condition. Mayor Ryba is pleased to advise that Standard & Poors has confirmed that the Village rating has been reaffirmed as AA, or unchanged from the previous year.
A public hearing on the budget for the 2014-15 Fiscal Year will be held at the next Board of Trustees meeting, Monday April 21, 6:30PM at Village Hall, 201 McCouns Lane. Copies of the proposed budget are available at Village Hall.
In February, the Board of Trustees passed a local law allowing the Village to exceed the NY State tax cap as a defensive measure since the penalty for unintentionally exceeding the tax cap is severe. The Mayor and the Village's trustees can now confirm that the proposed budget does not exceed the Village's tax cap.
A public hearing on the Old Brookville Police Department budget for the next fiscal year will be held at the next Board of Trustees meeting, Monday April 21, 6:30PM at Village Hall, 201 McCouns Lane. Copies of the proposed budget are available at Village Hall.
