NY STATE COURT OF APPEALS RULES ON TAXTER RIDGE LAWSUIT--DISMISSES APPEAL
Release Date: January 22, 2009
The NY State Court of Appeals (the highest court in NYS) has dismissed the Taxter Ridge case, which means that the Appellate Division’s decision remains the law. We now need to move forward cooperatively as a friendly and neighborly town.
We are under obligation to charge the costs of parks and recreation facilities that are located within unincorporated Greenburgh to taxpayers in unincorporated Greenburgh. We will resume efforts to amend the Finneran law so as to give the Town Board the flexibility to expand the use of the parks so as to increase town revenues. This decision may generate some momentum to amend the law so we could rent the tennis courts to a private company during winter months --generating significant revenue to the town and major infrastructure improvements at the tennis courts (paid for by a private company). I will ask the committee that has been reviewing the Finneran Law to meet as soon as possible, to draft proposed state legislation so we can start lobbying our state representatives to amend the law.
