Village Board Begins Budget Discussions
The Village of Mineola Board of Trustees began its budget discussions last Wednesday. As Mayor Jack M. Martins promised, the tentative budget for the 2006-2007 fiscal year reflected no tax increase over the 2005-2006 budget.

However, the mayor and the village board seem to be mindful of any tax impact to residents and business owners.
