Town of Oswego Public Hearing on Proposed 2022 Budget

On Tuesday, October 26, 2021, the Town Board of the Town of Oswego held a public hearing on the proposed budget of 2022. The Town Board had reviewed and approved changes to the Tentative budget. This revised budget is now the Town’s Preliminary budget for 2022. This is the Budget on which the Town Board is expected to vote on at the November 9, 2021 Town Board meeting. The Preliminary Budget is available for review in the Town Hall. A copy is also available on the Town’s web site. This Budget reflects a projected .78% decrease to the Town’s tax rate.

Town Park Playground

During the COVID pandemic and shut down, the Town of Oswego has noticed increased use of our small Town Park. We have also received many comments about the lack of places to take young children so they can enjoy the outdoors while maintaining social distancing. The Town Board is examining the use of funds received through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to improve our facilities. Here are some pictures the Board is considering installing. More information is available at the Town Hall. We would like public comment regarding this project and invite people to vote as to which option is most desirable. Comments can be made at Town Hall, as a reply to this posting, or by emailing oswegosupervisor@gmail.com.

4 playground structures are ADA accessible
