STATEMENT ON TAXTER RIDGE LAWSUIT FROM
COUNCILMEMBERS BARNES, BASS, JUETTNER, AND WEINBERG
Since Town Council members represent the residents of the entire Town of Greenburgh, we feel it is important to keep the town together and find a fair and equitable solution to the legal challenges being raised to the way the town taxes its residents. We must do everything we can to get people to negotiate before we appeal. Therefore, we will ask the court to extend the deadline, for 60 days to perfect the town’s appeal of the Taxter Ridge decision and we intend to immediately engage the services of a professional mediator who hopefully will be successful in negotiating a resolution.
We believe the mediation process is the most productive way to resolve the differences between Greenburgh’s villages and unincorporated area. This is a great town and it is important to bring people together to discuss issues which have the potential of dividing us. We look forward to resolving these issues quickly and fairly
