New Rochelle Sewer Tax: We must speak out against unfair tax levy

May 06, 2009 - 19:27

This letter to the Editor appeared in the Journal News on May 1st. It speaks to the impending swer tax New Rochelle will be hit with.

************************************************
In response to the April 22 article, "New Rochelle sewage work to hit taxpayers," I appreciate the importance of a clean Long Island Sound and understand that upgrading sewer treatment facilities is vital to this goal. What I don't comprehend is why residents of the New Rochelle sewer district alone could be footing the bill at approximately $1,000 per household.

It also escapes me as to how two elected officials representing our city can have such a differing viewpoint regarding this burdensome, let alone unfair, tax levy. While county Legislator Jim Maisano expresses his outrage over these developments, Mayor Noam Bramson, through the issuance of another innocuous quote, is willing to let the residents of this city take another one on the chin.
