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.
- The Supervisor compiles a tentative budget which is submitted to the Town Clerk and then presented to the Town Board.
- The board reviews and can modify the budget which is then presented as the Preliminary budget for a public hearing.
- The Town Board files an Adopted Budget after the public hearing.
