A capacity crowd was on hand for three Public Hearings relating to taxes and fees in the Village of Alden as the Board of Trustees presented the tentative budget for fiscal 2015-16 on March 26th. Total spending under the plan will be $3,411,320 across all funds, an increase of 4.7% from last year. See full breakdown of the budget in the April 2nd issue of the Alden Advertiser.
