Dundee votes to raise tax, water rates

DUNDEE--The Dundee village board unanimously voted to approve a tax and water rate increase for bills after May 31 during the Tuesday, April 10 meeting.
The board approved their 2018-19 fiscal year budget, including a 2.35 percent increase in the tax levy for an additional $13,418.
The increase will be allocated to the new village shop and to update security cameras. The tax rate will increase $0.31, so a $100,000 assessed home will pay an extra $31.
The water rate will also increase from $6.30 to $6.60 per 1,000 gallons. The village said a family of four using 20,000 gallons per quarter will see an increase of $24 each year. There will be no sewer rate increase.
The board passed a commercial kennel resolution, prohibiting Dundee residents from owning four or more dogs. Those who are currently above this limit will be grandfathered. The resolution will become a law after it has been filed and approved by the state.
The board also voted to pass the Cold War veteran exemption. Cold War veterans, as defined by the state of New York, include military service from Sept. 2, 1945 through Dec. 26, 1991.
The exemption is in the amount of 10 percent of the assessed value of a property, provided the exemption does not exceed $4,000 or the product of $4,000 multiplied by the latest state equalization rate of the property's assessing unit and the exemption is subject to the definitions, limitations and requirements of subsection 458-b of New York State Real Property Tax Law.
The next board meeting will be Tuesday, April 24 at 5 p.m.
