On the ballot will be:
Proposition #1 - Shall the office of receiver of taxes and assessments for the town of New Hartford be abolished effective Dec. 31, 2011, with all powers and duties of that office to be transferred t the office of town clerk effective Jan. 1, 2012?A vote to abolish the Receiver of Taxes will save approximately $50,000 a year. Several other towns in New York State have abolished this office and it has been a very successful transition saving the taxpayers money without disruption of services.
Here is a link to the blog where we posted Supervisor Tyksinski's letter in the Town Crier regarding abolishing the Receiver of Taxes position.
Also on the ballot:
