Maybe, just maybe... now that the price of a barrel of oil has come down to $43.++ from $147(?) or roughly a 70% drop.... so will the proposed tax increase come down roughly 70%.....I won't, however, hold my breath!!!!

Why don't you go cry about a tax increase. BOOHOO, if you own a million dollar home you're paying an extra 350 dollars a year. wow, thats something to outrage about. What would you do with that 350 dollars anyway, make a car payment? WOWWWWWW. I'm assuming that you do not live in a million dollar home anyway, since most people don't, so your tax increase would be even less. Suck it up, theres no money left for honeoye falls to pay for anything, what do you want to happen... the town of Mendon to file for bankrupcy? Its not like Mendon/Honeoye Falls has outrageous property taxes anyways, since out of 19 towns in Monroe county it is the 5th cheapest to live in. If you can't handle being FIFTH, then move to the cheapest town. I'll even look it up for you so you can take your crybaby a$$ there.

I own a $75K home and my taxes will go up approx $375 with a 23% increase. I don't know where you get $350 per million.

The tax increase at 23% is 30 cents for every 1000 dollars of assessed property value. So... take 75 times .3 and what does that equal?? definitely not $375. Good job with the math though...
