Penn Yan sets hearing on tax cap override

    PENN YAN—The Penn Yan Village Board voted to set a public hearing on a local law renewing their tax cap waiver for 2013-14, during the regular meeting Tuesday, Dec. 18. This law would override the two percent tax cap set by the state, allowing the village to raise taxes past the state cap.
    The public hearing is set for Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. in the village hall. Mayor Bob Church said the village does not intend to exceed the tax cap but it is recommended to override it as a precautionary measure in case of an error or mistake in the budget.
    In other news:
    • The board voted to table a decision on a $2,861.24 water credit and $3,030 sewer credit for St. Mark’s Terrace until they can get more information on whether the building should be classified as an institution or an apartment complex.
