PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a Public Hearing will be held at the Municipal Building, 153 West Main Street, Babylon, NY, on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as can be heard to consider the adoption of Local Law #5 of the year 2017, to repeal Local Law #1, which was a Local Law authorizing a property tax levy increase in excess of the limit established in General Municipal Law §3-c. Local Law #1 was adopted on February 28, 2017, and filed with the Secretary of State on March 6, 2017.
Complete text of the above Local Law is available in the office of the Village Clerk.
All interested persons should appear at the above time and place, and they will be given an opportunity to be heard.
Mayor Scordino explained that Local Law #5 of 2017 follows protocol of New York State; since we did not pierce the tax cap imposed by New York State, we must repeal Local Law #1 of 2017 which gave us authority to do so if necessary.
The meeting was opened to the public; no one approached the Board.
On the motion of Mayor Scordino, seconded by Trustee Muldowney and unanimously carried,
BE IT HEREBY ENACTED that the following Local Law is HEREBY ADOPTED:
Local Law #5 of the year 2017 to repeal Local Law #1 of 2017, which was a local law authorizing a property tax levy increase in excess of the limit established in General Municipal Law § 3-C.
