So I am reading my local paper, while holding my nose, and came across a couple of
One local town ,who in part due to Andrew Cuomo’s(D) property tax caps are actually
becoming creative at spending less. Imagine that,being forced to live like the rest of us
in the real world.
Instead of crying foul they have come up with some interesting ways to cut back.
One component is the highway dept with 140 workers who’s job is to pickup brush and leaves,will now operate out of the solid waste dept where there is money to pay for it. This transfer allows the town to lower the hwy tax 101.92 per household.
To cut more than 600,000 in recycling costs they plan to partner with another township for single-stream recycling.
The budget also includes no salary increases for elected officials.
Did I mention the town supervisor is a Republican?
And in other news Pennsylvania teachers and unions are all up in arms because the Dept of Education is asking them to pay 140.00 per month towards their health insurance, claiming it’s a “war” on teachers. Sound familiar?
Wow don’t we all wish that was all we had to pay?
