Not sure which one you're looking at -- the first one on my list is a 2642 sf house for $1.325MM but I don't see the prop taxes listed.

 

And I have the same opinion about $70K in taxes on a $1.3MM house!

That is a 9500 sf house!  OSP's was 2900 sf.

But OSP has 6 times the lake frontage. That's not nothin'.

One of the articles mentions OSP's house is assessed at $5M+. SF doesn't matter.

Dude needs to pony up a few bucks and hire a Falconer.

 

My buddy is a Falconer (falcon trainer) for a local landfill. The falcons fly around and scare away/kill a few nuisance birds to keep them from the area. Coupled with some pyro and you no longer have a bird problem.

 

The tri-county area I live in has been pushing crows around for awhile, but if you are the one with pyro and falcons, you don't have much to worry about.

 

They are not expensive to hire, and there are more than a few around.

Aparently the rich commie wants the town to hire the falconer.

And his taxes will be going down next year while mine will be going up to pay for it.

After taxes I live off of about 14K per year and am legally not allowed to get another job. My taxes are about to increase $2,000 per year without an increase in income because of the removal of section 26 something or other 117(D) of the old tax code. I know of someone in the same boat at a better grad school, who earned his way in there, who will lose almost $7,000 of what he takes home now, which isn't far off of my number. He may have to leave school because taking on loans when you already have a STEM degree, until you're almost 30, is not a smart idea.

Preventing someone from making more money sounds anti-American to me.

There is a simple inexpensive solution for Golisano's problem. When I first heard of it I tried to contact the head of his foundation but didn't get a return call. I used to have a property on Chautauqua Lake and was invaded by geese. I researched solutions and found a product from Liquid Fence specifically designed to make the grass taste awful without harming it. It worked wonderfully. I used about 1/2 gallon of concentrate ($125 a gallon) so I think maybe he should pony up and not expect the government to do it for him.

But telling people that a tax hike is actually a tax cut,... and having them believe it, is absolutely American. Edited by SwampD

Announcing what? (For those of us may have trouble accessing links)

He acquired 3 rabid pit bulls to patrol his Canandaigua property for rogue geese.

Perfect translation.

It's a new website/initiative attempting to educate property owners on assessments, etc.  Looks like he's considering pulling together a class action as well.  Love the spirit, but not so sure this applies to anyone but the 1% owning super high value property.  For the rest of us, if my whole street complains and gets an adjustment it's just going to raise the rate town-wide.  Maybe he's already thought of that, and he's counting on the 2% cap to squeeze things, but we love our public schools here NY. Cities excluded (sadly), they are world class in my opinion.
