Resolution/Document Body

WHEREAS, according to New York State’s Property Tax Cap legislation, if a county government decides to adopt a county budget with a property tax levy that exceeds the level set by the State’s cap calculation formula, the county government must pass a local law to override that cap, and


WHEREAS, on July 6, 2017, the Tompkins County Legislature adopted such a Local Law, and


WHEREAS, the Tompkins County Legislature has not adopted a budget exceeding the property tax levy cap as set by the State’s cap calculation formula and therefore needs to repeal Local Law No. 4 of 2017, and


WHEREAS, a public hearing was held before the Tompkins County Legislature on December 5, 2017, to hear all persons interested in proposed Local Law No. 6 of 2017, now therefore be it


RESOLVED, on recommendation of the Budget, Capital, and Personnel Committee, That Local Law No. 6 of 2017 – Repeal of Local Law No. 4 of 2017 - A Local Law Overriding Tax Levy Limit for 2018 is hereby adopted,


RESOLVED, further, That the Clerk of the Legislature shall publish in the official newspaper of the County a notice of adoption containing a synopsis of said local law and shall within twenty days file one certified copy in the Office of the County Clerk, and one copy with the Secretary of State.
