The village of Haverstraw Board of Trustees has adopted its 2014-15 budget this week.
Under the plan, homeowners in the village will pay 6.1 percent more in taxes next year compared to this year.
Prior to Monday’s budget hearing, dozens of residents picketed in front of Village Hall, expressing opposition to the tax hike.
The initial budget proposal by Mayor Michael Kohut called for an increase of about 7.9 percent, but since then, the board found some savings. Proposed raises for non-union employees were eliminated.
The adopted budget meets the state tax levy cap of 1.48 percent, Kohut said.
