Southampton Town approves PILOTs for 2010; Hampton Bays will see its share slashed

Dec 2, 2009 4:15 PM

Ms. Kabot has proposed a repayment plan, dubbed “Plan B,” which calls for a 10-year repayment of PILOT money, at a rate of $200,000 per year, to the other eligible districts. The $200,000 would be subtracted from the Riverhead School District’s tax relief from the PILOT program. The plan, if adopted, would begin in 2012.

“It’s like taking the whip cream off their pie,” Ms. Kabot said, referring to the Riverhead School District. “It’s going to other districts that should have gotten it in 2007.”

A public hearing on the town’s proposed corrective action plan will be held on Tuesday, December 8, at 1 p.m., at Southampton Town Hall.

I hope the HB School Board, Teachers' Union and Administrators keep this in mind while negotiating the new contract.

The HB taxpayers are bleeding to death.

The town should keep this in mind also when they create problems on things like PDDs and extra density for affordable housing. "It's only an anticipated 5 extra children here and three extra children there." It keeps adding up and the HB taxpayer suffers more and more. Pity they don't get out in droves to vote their own interests. ...more

Why does every school district need a superintendant? Especially in a district like Hampton Bays--one elementary school, a middle school (on the same grounds as the elementary school) and one high school--and you need a superintendant at $200k all in/year? (maybe more when you consider salary, benefits, pension).

Why not eliminate superintendants from Westhampton and Hampton Bays and have one for Southampton Town? Save $500k/year easy.
