Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente delivered his budget proposal for 2024, which says property taxes will not be raised for the 11th straight year.

The coming spending plan is nearly $530 million, which is up $36 million from last year's.

Some of the investments the county would make if the budget is approved include $225 million for health and human services, $79 million to public safety, $70 million for public works projects and $29 million will go to education, to name a few line items.

“We have created a government that is responsive to our residents, our businesses and all of those who utilize our services, and we have done it without raising property taxes in 11 years,” Picente said. “A zero today is a continued commitment to my common sense, pragmatic, fiscally-conservative philosophy.”
