I heard the MBPOA is organizing a large clean-up of the Village on Saturday. I think that is great that they are stepping up to help out.

I had heard from Gail back in July that Carol had paid her taxes a little late and the village website had to be updated.

Even if Carol did pay her taxes and I don't know if she really did, it was not just a little late it was VERY late and she should be setting an example for residents not thumbing her nose at the rules.

nope, her current balance is over $600 owed. Hope they put tax arrears in the new ethics handbook.

This may sound really crazy as maybe wont stack up to a late tax payment but what if (could never happen) a village trustee ran a business in the wetlands area and thumbed his nose at the DEC and had a eyesore of a building in which strippers as in paint. chemicals oils and gas were stored then pushed boats and floating docks into title 2 protected wetland and even repaied a home and made it habitable with no permits and a septic system that met codes.and not that it would ever happen a 1 in a million shot a storm would hit and boats got pushed arounfd chemicals all leaked and oils stained the marsh lands and it was not accessable so some clean up can be done yet the damage is done and all is repaired as all looked the other way. That will never compare to a late tax bill,glad you got your priorities in order . Viva la Village

i don't think that bashing carol over her taxes is the issue at all. sometimes people have financial problems. as long as she pays (even it it's late) it's really none of your business. i don't see you asking anyone on the board if they have overdue credit card payments, or a late mortgage payment. the other trustees won't work with her, but she is the only one who ever objects to the stepford village trustees.

All of these threads take a left in the same old direction. R.I.G.H.T
It always turns into village bashing (which Im not against)
I could start a thread on bunny rabbits and watch what happens.
