Niagara County’s 2019 budget, which drops the tax rate to the lowest level in decades, was approved on Tuesday night.
The 1.3 percent cut brings the tax rate to $7.01 per $1,000 of assessed valuation.
For the eighth consecutive year, the county budget is under the state’s property tax cap limit. Specifically, it is $628,000 below the cap.
Legislature chairman Keith McNall said “Our families deserve a fiscally responsible county government, and this is a fiscally responsible county budget.”
