County approves budget that will lower county property taxes in city, most municipalities
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Onondaga County lawmakers voted on Tuesday to approve a budget that will lower county property taxes for people in the city of Syracuse and in most villages.
The $1.24 billion budget was approved by a vote of 15 to 2.
The county’s tax levy will fall. The remainder of the budget will be funded with sales tax revenues, fees, and state and federal aid.
Property taxes will fall in 14 villages and 12 towns.
Meanwhile, taxes will rise in seven towns and one village.
It is worth noting that residents could still see an increase in their taxes depending on what budget their individual municipality votes on.
