Meeting History

Jan 4, 2017 3:30 PM  Government Operations Committee Regular Meeting

Mr. Franklin said that when new State legislation affects Real Property Taxation, he brings it to the Committee’s attention prior to sending it to the local towns and school districts for consideration. He explained this Alternative Veterans Exemption - Operation Graphic Hand and said in 1970 President Nixon called up 28,100 active and reserve personnel to deliver mail within New York City in response to a postal strike during the period March 23-April 4. If the County adopts this exemption, the reservists who delivered mail during this period would receive the benefit (15% of their assessment up to a maximum of $15,000).

Following a brief discussion, Committee members present did not wish to support this exemption.
