The Check is in the Mail.. Literally!

Amityville homeowners received a check in the mail from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance because taxing jurisdictions like Amityville Village and the Amityville School District complied with the State’s Two Percent Property Tax Cap.

The average rebate check is just shy of $300 – an amount equivalent to the 2015 increases in property taxes by those taxing jurisdictions that complied with the tax cap.  This rebate allows those jurisdictions’ leaders to rightfully claim they froze their constituents’ property taxes.  As your Mayor, I’m proud to be fighting against high property taxes.

I hope you will join me in congratulating Trustee Nick LaLota, the Village’s Budget Officer and the architect of Amityville’s financial comeback, for this victory that has literally put money back in your pocket.  For three years in a row, Nick has designed balanced budgets that comply with the tax cap, do not cut services and make significant investments in capital projects like road repair.  And, for the first time since 2008, Amityville has an operating fund that is positive.  Fellow Trustees who have voted in favor of Nick’s budgets deserve credit too – for putting Amityville’s taxpayers first.

While I have you smiling about the rebate check, I’d like to ask you for a favor:  I understand your family has many financial demands, but if you can afford it, I ask that you spend a portion of today’s rebate check in the Village’s downtown.  Through the efforts of the Downtown Revitalization Committee, my Administration, and many brave entrepreneurs who share a vision of our Village’s greatness, our Village is experiencing a renaissance of specialty stores, restaurants, and businesses.  To keep this progress going, they need Amityville’s help.  

Whether brand new or existing, Amityville has a unique selection of shops that would appreciate your business.  Hopefully you like the progress and are in the position to help keep our Downtown moving forward.  When we shop locally, independent businesses can thrive and keep our downtown community vibrant.  A much larger share of the money spent at locally owned stores stays in our economy, supporting a variety of other businesses and jobs.

Congratulations on being a part of such a great Village, and hopefully I will see you around town!

Sincerely,
James  Wandell,  Mayor
