Board Overrides Tax Cap

Written by Adam Sternberg Wednesday, 27 March 2013 00:00

The Roslyn village board voted to override the state law that limited property tax increases to no more than two percent per year. 

When the tax cap law was approved in 2011, it came with a provision that allowed villages to opt out of the tax limit if voted on by 60 percent of the governing body.  This is the provision that village officials have taken advantage of both last year and in this year’s budget. At the same time, it doesn’t mean that property taxes will exceed the two percent limit. In fact, the village, Mayor John Durkin said, has no plans to do so.

In the meantime, Clark officials have up to 40 trees to replace. That restoration process received a huge boost recently when the Manes-American Peace Prize Foundation donated $10,000 to the gardens. Old Westbury resident Harvey Manes heads the foundation.
