Jefferson Tax Hike Providing the Extra Revenue 175 Wanted....So What's the Story at 245 ? | WWNY TV 7

         The county sales tax did indeed go up this year and one Legislator says things are on "the way to recovery".  The extra quarter point is the reason. Now the City gets 24% of the local share under the 2004 agreement I negotiated (everyone else was willing to settle for the 21% offered).
         So if sales taxes are up, why is the City proposing a hike in property taxes ? That extra point has shown up in the last seven months of the fiscal year ending and will be part of the year ahead.
         That's why it will be child's play to rearrange the numbers and stay under the cap.

We don't care. You are not a registered republican so we voted for the other guy who is.

They still need to cut some spending. Stupid spending.

Too early to see the impact of the increase. That combined with the 25% increase in minimum wage is going to really thin the heard in the restaurant business. Just give it a little time...

Give everyone raises and stipends if you live outside the city.

Jeff: Is this just a case of playing with the numbers? Addison must have realized that STR is going to be up by at least the amount of the raise. Why such a gloom and doom budget then? Is this all part of their strategy to cut all of our services? Is she being honest with the taxpayers? Just wondering how you see it.
