In Amherst's State of the Town address Friday, Supervisor Satish Mohan said he plans to introduce budgets for 2009 and 2010 that would freeze spending at this year's levels. He said he and new Council Member Guy Marlette are committed to keeping spending down.
Though town spending has consistently gone up for nearly a decide, Mohan said he hopes to gain more Town Board support to freeze spending over the next two years.
Has the political climate in Amherst changed enough for this to happen, or is this goal likely to be one that will remain unfulfilled?
