Mayor Noble Announces New Online Budgetary Tool
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that the City of Kingston is now utilizing a new platform, Clear Gov, for the City budget to increase transparency.
“As we head into the next budget process, we are pleased to release the 2023 adopted budget on a new platform, which gives residents a different view, with charts and graphs that may be more user friendly for the average citizen deciphering a $50M budget. Using this new technology, residents now have more than one option to review the City budget,” said Mayor Noble. “The City Comptroller, myself, and the Common Council spend weeks working on the City budget each year, and encourage the public to be a part of the process. We’re hoping by providing another tool for ready access to the budget document, the public will have more clarity into this complex document.”
The 2023 Budget Book can now be viewed at: www.engagekingston.com/budget.
With the 2023 Budget, the tax levy was reduced to the lowest level seen since 2015. The 2024 Budget process begins in August. Future City of Kingston Adopted Budgets will be available via the Clear Gov software.
