Resolution seeks to pierce tax cap in Brightwaters
The Brightwaters board of trustees on Monday introduced legislation that would allow the village to pierce the state-mandated 2 percent tax levy cap.
Board members said the pending resolution is a precautionary measure as the village prepares its 2013-14 budget that takes effect June 1. State law requires municipalities to pass a separate measure in case they need to exceed the tax cap.
