To the Editor:

I was disappointed to learn from Southold Town last week that the Mattituck-Cutchogue School District did not have a meeting by March to discuss or approve a program for our local veterans to get discounts on their school taxes for the coming year. 

Both Southold and Greenport school districts approved the discounts.

Being married to a disabled Vietnam veteran who has served his duty for our country, things like this approval for the school tax discount should have been done for our local area veterans.

Nancy Wells, Mattituck

Editor’s Note: While the district did discuss the tax exemption at a meeting, a public hearing was never held.
