State Government & CT Towns and Cities: Just The Facts.
Budget crunch time has arrived at the State Capitol and Connecticut local governments have a lot at stake for property tax relief. The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities is calling on the Governor, and state legislators to support a new state budget that protects the current state aid for all towns, targets state aid increases to needy communities, and delivers real mandates relief.
Property tax relief equals:
-- No NEW workers' compensation mandates
-- Increasing PILOT funding as proposed by the Governor & Appropriations Committee
-- Maintaining state aid increases for education
-- Meaning relief for posting legal notices & providing ambulance services
CCM asks state legislators to report out a state budget that makes municipal aid a priority and avoids higher property taxes, municipal service cuts, and municipal employee layoffs.
