EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – The Eastchester Town Council unanimously adopted a nearly $34.5 million budget that stayed within the 1.56 percent tax levy cap.

This year’s $34,464,464 budget represents a 1.25 percent tax rate increase over the 2014 budget, which came in at slightly more than $34 million.

In all, most Eastchester homeowners will see an increase of approximately $6.50 each month in town taxes. Bronxville residents will notice a $1.81 increase each month, while Tuckahoe’s bill will be approximately an additional $10 for the entire year.

Unfunded mandates continue to plague Eastchester, and most Westchester County communities, and account for more than 25 percent of the town’s total budget. The budget calls for a fee freeze for members at Lake Isle, as well as a 2 percent increase in funds for the Police Benevolent Association.

In total, employee benefits will account for $9 million of the budget, with contractual and personal services adding up to more than $20 million.
