Most smaller villages and cities have properties that are exempt and account for about 50% or more of tax exemptions. All properties are assessed including your schools and village properties and water treatment plants, cemeteries municipal buildings and police and fire department buildings and town offices and library ect. When you take them out of the equation then the actual properties paying taxes jumps to about 90%. Then you have your ARC properties and nursing homes that make up the rest along with some veterans exemptions and vfw and american legion that don't pay.

50% exempt, not Ilion and Mohawk. And what does this have to do with voting no.

Herkimer is screwed and Frankfort has cancelled spring sports.

lived in the valley most of my life (ON AND OFF TO BE 100% honest) and NEVER SAW CRAP to come out of mohawk except one hell of a good man who became an almost astronaut and died,,,, and a bunch of protests about how much they love homosexuals,
end of my brief.
i saw the best of times and saw the worst of times..
and MOHAWK STILL HAS'NT shown me squat..cliquy (SP for hillyard HA HA ), small minded, no growth,
and no future.to date..and no prospects either..maybe the valley just adopted the same SLO-MO values..get up do samo-samo AND TEACH IT TOUR KIDS??
WHAT THE HECK..THE SUN WILL COME UP TOMORROW.

I WAS RAISED DIFFERENTLY..MY PARENTS TOUGHT ME TO BE CHALLENGED BY LIFE..NOT TO ACQUIESCE AND BE WHIPPED by it.
i cry daily for your kids whom i shall never meet
BECAUSE OF YOU....look into the mirror.....is that all you want them to be??????/
I HOPE NOT..dump the sports,,teach themto learn and LOVE IT, if its not already too late,,
GROW NOT BY LEAPS AND BOUBNDS BUT LIKE GREG JARVIS>>JUST TRY AND TOUCH THE STARS.you may fail BUT OTHERS WILL FOLLOW.AND YOU WILL SUCCEED...AND SO SHALL WE..........
