It does not have to work that way...paying town taxes because one lives in a village within a town.... Also, what town services do I get besides driving on town roads?

You get the services of the town clerk, the board, dog catcher, they represent you on Town issues. Plus I am sure lots of other things.

Don't like paying both, do away with the village.

Why do I need representation on town issues? If I did not have to pay town taxes, then I would not need the services of the town clerk. I think the village and the town should consolidate, like the village court and the town court did. Other towns and villages are consolidating. Then we would only have one tax regarding that, and everyone would pay their fair share....and it would cut down on expenses.

Go to board meetings. I know when i used to go there were certain board members that were I want people,not the village needs people. In other words,they were really only there to pretty much push their own personal agenda.
