Clinton village budget
-- The Clinton Village Board on Tuesday night approved a $1.49 million budget for 2009. The biggest change between this year and next is a 40 percent increase in value of all the property in the village, Administrator Philip Rath said. An assessment brought values into line, he said, increasing the assessed value of all property in the village from $91 million to $127 million. Properties were last assessed about 10 years ago, Rath said.
-- The village will see some increases in public works and public safety costs but a significant decrease in planning costs because it has completed its Smart Growth plan.
