But what do the county's cost-saving measures mean for the average Oswego County homeowner?<br /><br />The proposed tax rate would go up 16 cents for every $1,000 of assessed property value, translating to about an extra $15 tacked onto a homeowner's bill. While the rate is the highest it's been in six years, it still keeps the rate lower than it was in 2005, by more than 20 percent.</p> Fri, 22 Nov 2013 20:38:03 +0000 Gino Geruntino 47547 at http://wrvo.org Oswego County Legislature prepares for upcoming budget vote Onondaga County to vote on proposed 2014 budget this week http://wrvo.org/post/onondaga-county-vote-proposed-2014-budget-week <p></p> Mon, 07 Oct 2013 12:08:57 +0000 Ellen Abbott 45266 at http://wrvo.org School Budget Series: The statewide school budget situation http://wrvo.org/post/school-budget-series-statewide-school-budget-situation <p>Many school budgets across New York state have been hit hard by the recession.
