Tompkins County Legislature adopts 2020 budget
ITHACA, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Tompkins County Legislature has adopted the 2020 Budget and Capital Program through 2024.
The $193.5 million budget will increase taxes by $11.41 for a median-valued $190,000 county home. It includes $93 million in net local spending, and increases the county tax levy by 2.75 percent. That levy increase, however, falls below the county's tax cap of approximately 5.41 percent, as calculated by New York State.
The budget was approved unanimously.
