Town of Mamakating Budgets

The Budget Process


The Town Board is required by New York State to create a budget for each calendar year.
  • The process begins with departments submitting their estimated expenses to the Supervisor in September.
  • The Supervisor compiles a tentative budget which is submitted to the Town Clerk by September 30 and that budget is presented to the Town Board by October 5.
  • The board reviews and can modify the budget which is then presented as the Preliminary budget for a public hearing to be held by the Thursday following the November election day (in 2016 this date is Nov 10).
  • The Town Board files an Adopted Budget after the public hearing by November 20th.
