  • Lets take a serious look at properties that have not paid any real estate taxes in way over any reasonable limits. There are people that own multiple properties through out Suffolk County and are in arrears for upwards of 10 years and still going strong. By strongly advertising these tax sale properties, revenue would be received and properties would gain active owners with vested interest. There is one person who owns many, many properties on the South Shore and at Fire Island and is arrears on most – some 10+ years, and there are many more. Lets stop milking the same cow – the people that meet the deadlines, pay their property taxes and lets go after those properties in arrears way before any financial crisis arrived.

  • County Executive Steve Levy said his staff will welcome the legislature’s input on ways to cut the deficit, but he expressed some concern that the savings would be “one-shot deals. Say what you may about Levy but he is dead on with the” one-shot deals”. lets get some concessions from the county workers too. Suffolk county sold alot of good land in the late 70s for the sames reason as now..

  • Good to see them focusing on spending because that is what must be reduced.
