Village & Town Taxes

No New Posts Village and Town Taxes

Village & Town Taxes in New York State seem to always be increasing. How can we get the best value for money for the towns and villages along the Erie Canal? The NY Government Reorganization & Citizen Empowerment Act may have the Answer.

No New Posts Opposition to the Stop The Canal Clearcut Movement

The ECNA will show why arguments supported by the Stop The Canal ClearCut group are simply misrepresentations of the truth & have little to no scientific support. We will debunk all claims made by the STCC that are NOT based or supported by scientific facts. **A Battle for Erie Canal Safety is being waged, people cannot ignore the message from NY Canals who have clearly stated there is an issue with Unsafe Embankment Dams. ** Fighting against a Public Safety project in our community must stop, join the discussion.
