NH does not collect $31 million a year. The town budget is under $14 million for 2013.The New Hartford Town Budget collects revenues of approximately $31,000,000.$16,000 is is .0005% of the Town budget. The population of the Town is 22,000.$16,000 costs each resident 73 cents or 15 cents per year for 5 years. That's how I define minor. The $16,000 is not coming out of your pocket only.
Hey! It rained alot today. Ask any town resident what they want more, storm water projects or a library!
Hint: It's the former not the latter.
