Pendleton GOP Town Supervisor Raises Taxes 123%April 11th, 2017
A report from our Town of Pendleton Democratic Committee Chairman Jim Sacco
I went to the Pendleton Town Board meeting today and asked the following questions:
Questions to Pendleton Town Board:
Over the past few years the Town Board in Pendleton has cut the Town Taxes each year.
I believe that we we were at the point to where we could have eliminated the Town Tax this year.
I looked at this year’s Town Budget and see that the Town Tax is going up 123% based on the tax rate for last year.
So it seems we are going in a different direction.
What benefit does this large Town Tax increase have for the homeowners/taxpayers in the Town of Pendleton??
How does this town tax increase compare to what other neighboring towns are doing??
I showed how the town tax went up 123% and the other decreases that he talked about were very modest (smaller).
