1. County Taxes
County Legislator Michael Kaplowitz reported that Yorktown’s county tax will decrease by 2.2% for 2013. Although the county’s tax rate was technically zero, the taxes are apportioned to each municipality based on its assessment roll.
2. Courtesy of the Floor
a. Sultana Ridge Pool Association: The association presented the Board with a check for $2,000 in partial payment of unpaid back taxes..
b. Senior Clubs: The Board postponed taking action on the 2013 agreements that would provide six senior clubs with program funds pending the receipt of additional information.
c. Town Board Minutes: The Town Clerk’s office was asked to update the Town Board minutes page on the Town’s web site. It was noted that the last available minutes were for the October 19, 2010 meeting.
The Board appointed Patricia Caporale to the position of Comptroller. She will serve at the pleasure of the Board or until the next Town election.
