The Little Silver Borough Council introduced a tentative budget for 2013 that will raise about $6.6 million through property taxes.
Little Silver introduced its municipal budget for 2013 and while there are a lot of variables -- like tax rates and the borough's current revaluation -- to consider, the bottom line is that tax bills should increase about $150 annually for the owner of the average-assessed $500,000 home in town. The borough will raise about $6.6 million of the approximately $12 million general budget through property taxes and another $5.45 million through anticipated revenue other than property taxes, according to Laura Geraghty, Little Silver's chief financial officer, at the March 18 council meeting. Councilman Don Galante explained that the $150 increase would include the entire tax bill -- including local and regional schools, county and open space…

The average Oceanport and Little Silver taxpayer pays more in property taxes than the statewide average, but Oceanport's average tax bill percentage increase was well below the state's average in 2012. In contrast, the average Little Silver taxpayer's bill increase was almost double the statewide average. The data is contained within a Star Ledger analysis that looked at the average bills in all 566 municipalities in the state in 2012, two years after the Legislature and Gov. Chris Christie enacted a hard 2 percent cap on local budget growth. Oceanport had an average $9,221.06 tax bill in 2012, as compared to the $7,870.28 state average.

Inlet first stop on 'Endless Summer Tax Relief Tour'
Gov. Chris Christie, who for months has been touting his income tax relief proposal for all New Jerseyans, will make an appearance Monday in Manasquan to do just that. Christie is scheduled to speak at 3 p.m. at the Pavilion at the Manasquan Inlet, 431 Beach Front, for the first stop in what's being called the governor's "Endless Summer Tax Relief Tour: A Conversation at the Jersey Shore."

The borough will not have to cut back services, Councilman Joseph A. Irace says.
The Oceanport Borough Council adopted a budget Thursday night that will mean an increase in the municipal tax rate of less than one cent. The budget will mean an increase in muncipal taxes of 1.9 percent, compared to the current fiscal year, Councilman Joseph A. Irace said during the public hearing that preceded the adoption. Irace chaired the committee that prepared the budget. For example, the assessed value of the average home in Oceanport is now $450,000, said Irace, who chairs the council's finance committee. The taxes on that house would increase under the proposed budget by $40.50 this year, to $2,286. Per month, the tax increase is only $3.37, Irace said. The budget, which will raise $6.96 million, will mean no cut in services for …
