STEUBEN — Anticipating cuts in state aid to municipalities, selectmen are asking residents to approve a bare bones $797,865 budget at Town Meeting March 9.
The current town budget is $958,360, which does not include the county tax or funding for education.
The Town Meeting will be held at 1 p.m. at the Ella Lewis School gymnasium.
Elections will be held Monday, March 4, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the town office.
Selectman David Glass is running unopposed for re-election to a three-year term.
Henri Gignoux is a write-in candidate for his seat on the Regional School Unit 24 Board.
The county tax, according to Town Clerk Julie Ginn, was $267,163 in 2012 and will be $283,812 in 2013.
Local funding for education in 2012 was $1.7 million. Figures for the coming year are not yet available.
Among other items on the town warrant is a proposal to eliminate the three-person Board of Assessors and appoint one assessor.
