FREEPORT — The Town Council has prepared a budget schedule with the intention of adopting the fiscal year 2017 spending plan on June 7.

Councilors on Jan. 5 reviewed the draft schedule and are expected to approve it next month. The schedule also includes presentations and workshops on a five-year capital program.

The capital plan, which Council Chairwoman Melanie Sachs said will be slightly different from last year, will be presented to councilors by Town Manager Peter Joseph on March 1. A workshop on it will be held March 15, a public hearing on April 5, and formal adoption is scheduled for April 12.

Joseph will present operating, capital, and tax increment financing budgets to councilors on May 3, a workshop will be held May 17, and a public hearing will be held May 31.
