2015 Oxford County Budget Proposal

FY 16 UT
Budget Proposal


Stairs, repairs bulk of increases in proposed budget

by Christopher Crosby, Staff Writer Sun Journal Oct. 8, 2014

PARIS — Oxford County departments are requesting an additional 7 percent in funding — a $.05 tax increase — in a first glance at the 2015 budget.

Courthouse steps
The majority of the 7 percent increase proposed by departments in Oxford County's 2015 budget is building maintenance, including the stairs in front of the courthouse at 26 Western Ave. in Paris.

The county tax represents the smallest of the three claimants on residents' property tax bills.

The 2015 proposal seeks $405,097 more from residents than last year — from $5,273,965 to $5,679,062. It would fully fund current programming and add two new positions if the budget proposal passes.

At $385,000, capital expenditures on building improvements comprise the lion's share of that request.

The proposal calls for launching a $500,000, four-year plan to weatherproof the courthouse's brick exterior at $125,000 a year, $100,000 of which would be split between roof repairs and renovations to the district attorney's office.
