Why is our little town driving us out?? Us and many many others. The town of Cicero, NY has increased our taxes to a point which are unaffordable to most residence. We received a letter the other day pertaining to town tax increases. Giving the residence until the 27Th. of this month to dispute it. It seems we are having to constantly dispute something our Governments and businesses are doing to survive from day to day. With the economy the way it is, we are now doomed. Really, I am not kidding. MY FAMILY IS DOOMED. I have to select between eating and paying taxes. NY is no place for family's anymore. I , like many, love NY. However, to continue to stay here spells disaster for us. We are hanging on by a thread. Now we are sinking with these outrageous tax increases. The money we received from the Government to stimulate the economy $1200.00 has to go back to the Government in the way of taxes, PLUS AN ADDITIONAL $800.00 DOLLARS MORE. I don't think this is what President Bush had in mind when he announced it to the citizens.. This is not stimulating by any means. It is an out right crime. Time to sell and get out. Like many others we can't keep doing this. It is sad. We have raised our children and grandchildren in this town. Greedy politicians and business is driving us out.We have to leave all our memories behind.



Sincerely

Another sinking American Cicero, NY resident.

The only way out of this mess that the previous admistration got us Cicero taxpayers into is to redo the lakefront property by assesing the actual house you live in and the lot size not the view or location. The money we are spending on the wasteful cicero police should be used for our own town assessor ahd some part time when needed.We really do need a emergency referendum for or against the lame cicero police dept.In my opinion the GAR needs to be replaced by our own town assessor because of all the inconsistantcies.
