Spending would increase 3.8 percent under a proposed $2.6 million town budget released last week by Marilla Supervisor George Gertz.
If the budget is approved by the Town Board, Marilla would remain one of the few municipalities in the county with no townwide general tax.
Town revenue comes from mortgage and sales taxes and state aid.
The general fund supports employee salaries, benefits, insurance, town buildings, museums, parks, library and lighting district.
The budget proposal includes 3 percent across-the-board salary increases for all employees.
The board also is considering a new computer-driven message sign to replace the old hand-operated one in front of the Community Center.
