2024 Warren County budget approved by Board of Supervisors


The Warren County Board of Supervisors has adopted a $192,837,622 million budget for 2024 that will bring a countywide tax rate decrease for the fourth straight year.

The 2024 county budget will decrease the countywide property tax rate by $0.29 to $3.284 per $1,000 in assessed value. (Rates per municipality will vary based on equalization rate).  Based on the countywide tax rate, a homeowner with a home assessed at $200,000 will pay about $58 less in county property taxes.

Said Frank Thomas, Stony Creek Town Supervisor and Warren County Budget Officer: “Putting together a budget for 2024 was challenging, but we believe this spending plan preserves essential services for our residents and visitors while continuing to keep the tax burden low in Warren County. We have been cautious with our financial forecast but are confident this budget will protect the county’s long-term financial position.”

The Board of Supervisors adopted the budget at its November 17, 2023 meeting.

The budget increased by 4.8% from 2023, but falls within the New York State property tax cap, and makes significant investment in vital county programs while compensating for increases in NY State retirement costs, assigned counsel funding, Medicaid and personnel funding.

Highlights from the tentative budget:

  • Provides funding to improve public transportation in Warren County through a new contract with Capital District Transportation Authority.
  • Allocates $4 million for paving county roads, continuing an effort to keep up with road maintenance needs.
  • Deletes 13 full-time and six part-time positions, while adding six full-time positions, five of them funded with 72% state funding reimbursement.
  • Increases funding for SUNY Adirondack to adjust to historically designated sponsorship levels.
