Steuben County Lawmakers have a lot on the agenda today: they’ll be passing the county budget, replacing the county lawmaker seat formerly held by Guy Hammond, and passing a new recycling policy. Under the new recycling policy, it’ll cost nothing, to recycle tv’s and computer monitors. Also, the county will be accepting a department of homeland security and emergency grant of over $170,000 for defending county residents against domestic terrorist attacks.
Also, there’ll be a cyber grant from the government, for $50,000 to protection and training on cyber security.
On the county budget, most Steuben County taxpayers will see their tax rate drop by more than 5.5 percent or 43 cents per $1,000.
