fire district vote results...proposed change in la
Release Date: April 02, 2005

Hartsdale voters approved plans to expand and renovate the two fire houses in Hartsdale by a vote of 133-68. The Hartsdale Fire District (which is independent of the town government) will spend $7.5 million on the expansion. The fire district taxes will go up by $6.90 per $1,000 of assessed value.

I believe that there should be a change in the law so that WestchesterCountyresidents will not have to pay the county, fire, sewer and town taxes in April. Currently, everyone has to pay their federal and state taxes the same month. The law should be changed so that local taxes would be due another month. This would make it easier for many people who find it difficult to pay their local, county, state and federal taxes the same month. In addition, the law should be changed to provide people with an opportunity to pay a portion of their taxes at given times during the year. Residents of Westchestercurrently pay half of their school tax bills in September and the other half in January. But, county, local taxes must be paid in one lump sum. It’s very hard for some people who live on fixed incomes. We have to look for ways to make it easier for people to pay their taxes, especially since the percentages of the tax increases are getting to be very high.
