Port Chester will vote tonight on whether to raise parking fees and other revenue in order to keep property taxes steady in the 2013-14 village budget.
Parking meter fees would go from 75 cents to $1 an hour and the meters would be in effect until 9 p.m. instead of 7 p.m., under the proposed changes. Many building and zoning application fee increases are also under consideration. (See details in the Board of Trustees agenda.)
The board has been reviewing a $36 million tentative budget by Village Manager Christopher Steers, which would raise the tax levy by 4 percent. Click here for a PDF of Steers’ budget proposal, a reader-friendly document that discusses village finances in great detail.
