The 2021 budget was adopted Nov. 24, 2020. Current and past Village/Town budgets are posted on the Somers website.
The combined levy for the Town and Village increased by $63,974, or 1.4 percent, from $4,467,391 in 2020 to $4,531,365 in 2021.
Properties in the Village of Somers were reassessed in 2020, which had not been done in 10 years. The new total assessed value for the Village is $921,232,000. This is a 25 percent increase from last year, which will reduce the overall tax rate in the village but may increase property owners’ taxes. The 2020 assessed value for the Town of Somers is $92,059,200, a decrease of $2,800,200 in value or 3 percent from 2019.
Because assessment was up in the Village, it will result in Town taxpayers paying a lower percentage of operating costs.
