Islip Town Board Adopts 2018 Operating Budget

November 9th, 2017 – Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter and members of the Islip Town Board, unanimously adopted the Town’s 2018 annual operating budget and a majority of the board adopted the 2018 capital budget at today’s annual budget hearing.

This budget is under the state-mandated 2% tax cap. The operating budget proposed a modest increase of 1.765% or $9.23 per household annually. The Town’s 2018 operating budget does not eliminate any services, or programs. As a direct result of the Town’s strong financial stewardship and Aaa bond rating, (the highest rating a municipality can obtain), the Town was able to absorb a projected double digit increase in health insurance costs. The 2018 operating budget is a no-frills budget with no cut in services and no layoffs.
