WPCNR THE FEINER REPORT. By Town of Greenburgh Supervisor Paul FeinerNovember 26, 2013:
32% of Greenburgh residents who are eligible to receive STAR benefits have not registered with NYS.
If you are one of the 5,000 property owners in Greenburgh who have not registered please do so by December 31st. You could lose a significant tax break if you do not register NYS will be sending a postcard to everyone who has not registered-reminding them to register..
It’s going to rain tomorrow. Our public works department is trying to be proactive –checking basins, clearing drains, sweeping roads so leaves don’t clog up the drains.
The law we approved last year requiring leaves to be bagged makes a difference during storms. In the past we had large leaf piles around the town clogging drains, making roads slippery. We have been able to use our employees more efficiently since the new leaf bag law was implemented— being more proactive. When there is a big storm there will always be some flooding. The action steps we have been taking should help minimize this problem.
DON’T LOSE YOUR STAR PROPERTY TAX BREAKS. NYS REQUIRES EVERY HOMEOWNER WHO RECEIVES BASIC STAR TO REGISTER BY DECEMBER 31, 2013. IF YOU DO NOT REGISTER YOU WILL LOSE YOUR TAX BREAKS. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A LETTER FROM THE STATE CALL (518) 457- 2036 OR APPLY ON LINE http://www.tax.ny.gov
