Brookhaven Town to hold public hearing on tax relief for Sandy victims

A law that would allow Brookhaven Town residents to seek reduced assessments on properties damaged by superstorm Sandy is scheduled for a public hearing tomorrow.

The town is weighing whether to adopt a state law passed earlier this year that enables taxing jurisdictions to extend tax relief to property owners affected by the October 2012 storm.

The public hearing is one of seven scheduled at a meeting of the town board, at 5 p.m. at Brookhaven Town Hall, 1 Independence Hill, Farmingville.

The board also plans to hold a hearing on its proposal to require annual registration of vacant properties. Other hearings are expected to address development proposals such as a planned Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant in Port Jefferson Station, a gas station in North Bellport and athletic fields in Holtsville.
