Letter: Reject Proposed 17% Lewisboro Tax Increase

LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The Lewisboro Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. Email your letters to

To the Editor,

The first thing Supervisor [Peter] Parsons did after being elected was to inflict the prospect of a tree law upon the hapless community of survivors of the Great Recession, still battered by foreclosures, high unemployment and a steady loss of people who could no longer afford the high property taxes.

Just before Sandy struck, Mr. Parsons then proposed a whopping 17 percent property tax increase, exceeding the 2 percent property tax cap much ballyhooed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Now that Sandy’s destructive path has exposed the foolishness of forcing the homeowners to preserve all trees at all costs, Mr. Parsons’ astronomical tax increase looks outright ill-advised to homeowners facing hurricane-related repair bills and higher unemployment prospects.

Hopefully the Town Board will show some backbone and reject this unneeded tax increase coming at a most inopportune time. Sarah Si Waccabuc
