Village Tax Hike Unavoidable
The Village of Roslyn board of trustees approved their 2001-2002 budget at a public hearing last Wednesday night.

The 2.99 percent increase was explained by BOT member Marshall Bernstein, who singled out sewage expenses as the budgetary item that made a zero tax increase impossible to achieve.
