The Oyster Bay Town Board plans to vote on the proposed 2018 budget at a special meeting Tuesday, well ahead of the Nov. 20 deadline to adopt a spending plan.
As in 2015, which was also an election year, the budget is expected to be passed early.
The proposed budget includes spending $298.8 million on what officials call town purposes.
For the second year in a row the largest single expenditure would be debt service which at $98.2 million would be 32.8 percent of spending.
