UPDATE: Southampton Voters Overwhelmingly Defeat Merger Proposal In Straw Vote Tuesday

Some of the comments express confusion about why the taxes would go up in Southampton and down in Tuckahoe. The reason is simple: The way the district lines are drawn, the particularly expensive real estate, including that in the Village and on the ocean, falls into the Southampton district, whereas that in Tuckahoe is more modest, if you can call anything in 11968 modet anymore. Being as the districts function as one, practically speaking, the residents of the Southampton district have had a bit of a free ride all these years in terms of their tax rate. I say this having paid the lower taxes in the Southampton district for many years. What is fair is fair, and I think the merger is a good thing." Oct 31, 13 7:38 AM
