NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING CONCERNING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FIRE DISTRICT IN THE
TOWN OF EAST GREENBUSH NEW YORK
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE, that the Town Board of the Town of East Greenbush will conduct a public hearing to consider whether a fire district should be established pursuant to Town Law Article 11 comprised of the properties within the existing Best-Luther Fire Protection District (FD009) and Third Avenue-Mannix Road Fire Protection District (FD010) in the Town of East Greenbush. The Public Hearing will be conducted on Wednesday July 14, 2021 at 5:45 PM at the East Greenbush Town Hall 225 Columbia Turnpike Rensselaer, New York 12144 to hear all persons interested in the proposal to establish such a fire district.
The boundaries of the proposed fire district shall be the same as the boundaries of the existing Best-Luther Fire Protection District (FD009) and Third Avenue-Mannix Road Fire Protection District (FD010) in the Town of East Greenbush. All of the real property and only the real property currently within the Best-Luther Fire Protection District (FD009) and Third Avenue-Mannix Road Fire Protection District (FD010) in the Town of East Greenbush is intended to be included in the proposed fire district.
The estimated tax rate per thousand dollars of assessed valuation of the proposed district based on aggregate assessed valuation of taxable property within the proposed fire district utilizing the 2020 final assessment roll projected to be assessed, levied, and collected in the fire district’s first fiscal year of operation is minimally changed from the current tax rate and projected to be a rate of $.7374 per thousand dollars of assessed valuation. The amount of the total tax levy for fire protection and emergency services in 2022 is expected to be similar to the amount of the tax levy for 2021. The formula by which the amount of future tax levies are to be calculated by the proposed fire district is expected to be consistent with the historical practices utilized in determining expenses for the fire contracts that were used for the calculation of the tax levies in the fire protection districts. A detailed explanation of how the estimated rate of assessment was computed for properties in the proposed fire district is on file with the Town Clerk and available for public inspection.
