SUPERVISOR PIAQUADIO COMMENTS ON CONSOLIDATION
Release Date: April 05, 2017

This press release is in response to the Governors suggestion that “Municipalities Consider Merging to Help Alleviate Fiscal Concerns” 
 
The Governor has intentions to relieve the financial burden on property owners by consolidating municipalities.  Why try to reduce the smallest percentage of our property tax expense?  In most localities, for every dollar spent on property tax, 15 cents goes to the local municipality be it Town, City or Village; 15 cents of that dollar goes to the County; and, 70 cents of each tax dollar goes to fund the school district in which we reside.
 
A 20% reduction in Town, City or Village tax would save a mere 3 cents per tax dollar.  In contrast, a 20% savings on the school taxes bill would save 35 cents per tax dollar.
 
The real solution is to alternate school funding, not add a new tax.  We should implement a shift in taxes, whereby sales tax is utilized to supplement school taxes.  Let’s join the other 39 states already doing it this way.
