Poughkeepsie, NY…Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro will host a series of town hall forums to discuss the 2016 Dutchess County Budget, as well as other county government topics of interest to residents.  The forums provide residents the opportunity to get an overview of the proposed 2016 budget and engage in a question-and-answer session with the County Executive.  Since taking office in 2012, County Executive Molinaro has hosted more than 60 town hall forums.

“The 2016 county budget cuts the property tax levy by over $1 million, cuts the property tax rate for the first time in eight years and has no reduction to services or programs.   As the County Legislature considers the budget proposal and moves toward final adoption, this is a great opportunity for residents to learn more about the budget and share their feedback,” said County Executive Molinaro.

Monday, November 30th at 5:30 PM
