Town approves fiscal year 2010 budget

CLEAR SPRING -- The Clear Spring Town Council unanimously approved the town's fiscal year 2010 budget Monday.

The town's budget in the upcoming fiscal year will be $525,830 -- a decrease from $660,000 the year before.

Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said the decease was largely due to a drop in state revenue.

The town's fiscal year 2010 budget keeps property taxes at their current rate of 19 cents per $100 of assessed property value, according to the budget document. Residents also will continue to receive a 5 percent discount in July.


Grimm said the town also will maintain the current rate of rental fees for houses owned by the town.
