AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Three days after Governor LePage rolled out his proposed new two year budget, town and city leaders across Maine say that budget would shift more of the tax burden to property taxpayers.
The two year budget would eliminate all municipal revenue sharing money for towns and cities. The Maine Municipal Association says that could costs local government 285-million dollars. But they say other proposed cuts would also increase the burden on local taxpayers.
Maine Municipal says it plans to bring their concerns to the Legislature.
