Update from County Administrator Steve Bulger:

Thanks to the leadership and vision of our elected officials, this County continues to be a statewide leader among all counties in many important metrics related to quality of life, fiscal responsibility, and the strong and vibrant growth of our population and economy.

Census reports confirm that Saratoga County has been the fastest growing county for the past decade across upstate New York.  Our low taxes, safe communities, excellent schools, and strong business growth continue to set us apart and make us an attractive place to live, work, and raise families.

Our proposed County budget for 2022 continues to reflect accountability and vigilant oversight by our leadership.  Saratoga County currently enjoys the lowest property tax rate AND sales tax rate out of all 62 counties across New York, and we are once again lowering our property tax rate in the coming year.  We also will be making significant new investments in public health, law enforcement, open space & trails, our non-profit organizations, and our County heritage, among other areas, to meet the needs of our taxpayers and citizens.

Here at County Government, we are focused on continuing and improving these positive trends, while delivering the services that our residents expect and deserve.  Please reach out to any of our Departments if we may be of assistance, and thank you for all you do to help Saratoga County attain the great quality of life we enjoy!
