The state can't expect every municipality to eat up their cash reserves. Sooner or later, century old infrastructures will have to be replaced, not to mention emergencies arise once in a while. I can see local laws overriding the cap but not by much. I was kind of shocked when I saw a significant jump in the town of Massena's tax hike but when it's all laid out, it has to be that way. There has to be an increase in the population through Economic Development because if Alcoa were to leave Massena for any reason, you may as well roll up the sidewalks because we would be done.
