Tupper Lake Works On Budget Expected To Be Above State Tax Cap

The village of Tupper Lake is developing a $3.3 million budget which is expected to be over the state-imposed tax cap and includes the town picking up at least a portion of the bill for the two police officers it provides to the school district. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports Village Mayor Mary Fontana said the village will “definitely” need to override the tax cap. This is primarily because the village may be picking up the majority of the cost of the two school resource officers it provides the Tupper Lake Central School District.
