It’s January 1, and around here that means bowl games and the unofficial start of “budget preparation season.” Like most localities, we start with the real estate tax, but unlike the others, we insert a zero! (Actually we just gray it out as shown below.)
You see, there is no real estate tax in Bridgewater. [SPOILER ALERT] As you can see from from the very top of next year’s budget, we’re aiming to keep it that way. We’re kind of proud that we can provide top-notch service without a real estate tax, and we hope you’re pleased as well.
Now back to football and budgeting.
