Notice to residents reveals tax increases

ELIZABETHTOWN - At the June 3rd meeting, the Town Council passed the proposed budget for 2024-25. This year posed unique challenges as we grappled with costs that have surpassed revenues, a trend that has persisted for several years. Despite our efforts to streamline processes, cut spending, reduce staff, and leverage technology to maintain our service levels, we faced a budget shortfall that necessitated adjusting property taxes after not doing so for 27 years. I have outlined much of this information and the Town Council’s plan to address our budget crunch for the long term in the Summer Issue of the Bridge Newsletter.

Chicken Piccata Pasta – It’s what’s for dinner

I am asked a lot, “what is piccata”? Well, even though it is an Italian word that means ‘larded’, it is also a translation of the French word ‘pique.’ piccata is basically a way of preparing food such as meat or fish which is sliced and sauteed in a sauce of lemon, butter and spices.

I made this for the first time as a Father’s Day dinner and my husband went crazy over it! He can’t wait for the left overs…
