The Development Authority of the North Country’s board of directors approved its 2013-14 budget Thursday.

DANC’s fiscal year runs from April 1 through March 31.

The budget includes increases in health insurance and state pension costs. Compared with fiscal year 2012-13, spending on benefits for the authority’s employees is projected to jump nearly 9 percent, from $2,047,882 to $2,229,743. That increase is largely because of a 14.2 percent rise in health insurance premiums and climbing state pension costs; the authority now has 67 employees in the state pension system.

DANC hiked tipping fees it charges municipalities and trash haulers at the authority’s solid waste management facility, 23400 Route 177, Rodman. Effective Jan. 1, tipping fees charged to haulers rose $5 per ton to make up for a consistent decline in trash.
