Ben's Deli gets building permit...tax interest amnesty announced
Release Date: September 26, 2013

Ben’s Deli FINALLY picked up their building permit today to construct their new deli on Central Ave to replace Spiga.  I’m excited. They first announced plans to open up a deli over a year ago. But, there were some construction related delays. Ben’s Deli will be a big asset to the community and to Central Ave.
21.8 million is owed to the town in tax liens. At last nights Town Board meeting the Board approved a tax interest amnesty for those who owe back taxes if the taxes are paid in full by December 30,2013.  We have two goals: We need to collect the tax arrears owed to us. And…we want to help property owners AVOID foreclosure. The resolution that was approved  by the Town Board appears below:
