That's why we refer to politicians that run opposing the landfill as the 180 CLUB. These people promise a lot of things that are unrealistic, then once in office they find out they were wrong and do a 180 degree turn around.

Didn't somebody already answer that question ? A 20 dollar tax rate was the answer I believe. But tell me why is the board so concerned about interest rates and bond ratings ? There is something they are not telling us.

Thousands of other communities are getting by just fine without massive tax increases and dump handout money. Hmmm...

And what PLANET are you on ? Everyone knows that every municipality in the country is just about broke and teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. Even you can't be that stupid, you just throw that out there with the hope someone will fall for it.

It was time to get off the teet. The previous Boards became irresponsible about the monies that Seneca Falls was receiving from the landfill. It was never earmarked to reduce taxes which it inappropriately morphed in to. It was viewed as a revenue source which it is not. A municipality's revenue sources are property taxes, sales taxes, as well as certain fees such as water and sewer, permits etc. It is time to get fiscally responsible and with that comes tough decisions. Lazzaro did a responsible act. Say what you want, he does have the best interest of the Town in his decision making. He might not perform it in all the right ways but he and no other want to see the Town implode. It is terrible that the taxes had to increase but the bottom line is that you will have to do without purchasing your $600 iPhone and get what you need, not what you want!

The board needs to take a tour of the town and count the boats, campers, motorcycles and $60,000 pickup trucks parked in people's yards. One board member said the tax increase is around $45.00 a month, I used to spend more than that on wild bird feed. It's your town, the place where you live, and people complain about spending around $2,000.00 a year to make it possible to live there. Is your cable bill worth more than your surroundings ? You people need to get REAL cry

I used to have $5000.00 a year in my household budget for charity. Most years I went well beyond that.

So why not go broke WITHOUT a tumor of other people's filth in your community? I mean, if we're all going broke anyway.

OK, "Hello Governor", why don't you explain to me, if you can, how exactly that statement makes me sound like a "welfare recipient". I'm giving you a chance to defend this utterly idiotic statement. By what mental gymastic reach does your statement at all make sense to you? Explain it to me. Otherwise I'm going to label your statement as yet another hateful belch of ignorant venom on a subject you have zero understanding of.

The Gov is busy flirting with the nurses and he told me to tell you " get a life " or " a job " or Just plain get lost " you are as bad as a commercial played over and over every 5 minutes." Now if you'll excuse me I going to join the Gov, the blonde from Clifton is on tonight.@@

Hitting the bottle a little early, I see. The geezer who spends literally every waking moment on these forums tells me to get a job and a life. That's rich. I have a job and a life, and I will not get lost. In fact, I'm not going anywhere.

p.s. those nurses are pretty creeped out by you.

I don't think the tax increase is terrible but it could have easily been rolled out gradually.

The dump isn't closing next year and they could have gradually increased taxes until they are no longer dependent on the dump.

This move just offers more proof of financial incompetence of the board members.

OMG, where have you been ? The SF ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION COMMITTEE has said for over a year that they want the town to stop depending on landfill money. Repeatedly saying they are willing to pay higher taxes if they don't have to deal with the stink. What you are seeing is a gradual increase in taxes cause this is just the beginning. It will be about the same as the other communities of that size, just under $20.00 per thousand.

Keep in mind Waterloo Town and Village adds up to about $22.55

Quote from a state report,

"In general, all town residents will see the Town tax rate go from zero to approximately $4.56/$1000 in the first year of dissolution. Village residents will see the elimination of the Village tax which is currently $16.93/$1000. In addition, the current Town highway tax will jump from zero to $1.66/$1000."
