Dundee waives tax cap; shares store plans

DUNDEE--The Dundee village board held their monthly meeting Tuesday, Feb 13. The board passed a resolution to establish a village state tax cap waiver for the fiscal 2018-19 budget. Mayor Fred Cratsley said, "The tax cap is very close to 2.38 percent for the upcoming year. With math adjustments and any late budget changes the percentage can come close or even slightly go over the tax cap percentage. This resolution is passed just in case a small tax cap overage results from the budgeting process, even though we don't expect to need it." Cratsley said Dandy Mart has presented their plans for the new Dundee store. Dandy Mart plans to erect a temporary building which will allow the company to run their gas pumps during the transition.
