UCCF 3/23/17: $354,769,823

From tonight’s freeholder meeting:

2017-261: Resolution to exceed the County tax levy limit and to establish a CAP Bank (N.J.S. 40A: 4-45.14).
2017-262: Authorizing various county entity/entities to exceed the County Entity Budget CAP (P.L., 2015, c.249)
2017-263: Authorizing various county entity/entities to exceed the County Entity Budget CAP (P.L., 2015, c.249)
2017-264: Resolution Introducing and Approving the Annual Budget of the County of Union for the Fiscal Year 2017
Which resulted in this from that 2017 budget introduced tonight:

So with those resolutions to exceed tax levy limits over the years did Union County raise taxes the most they were legally allowed to in 2017?

    This is a major problem!!!

    Not only does the county do this but also the municipalities. In Berkeley Heights we were under the 2% Cap by over $100K but they still raised the COLA to 3.5% to bank the > 1.5% to allow a greater tax increase in 2018 and/or 2019.

    We need to tell our municipal and county governments that this is NOT OK.
