Property Tax Freeze
To be eligible for the property tax freeze
credit, local governments are required to submit an efficiency plan to NYS Department of Budget by June 1, 2015. On this page,
you will find a link to the plan that the Town of DeRuyter will be submitting that outlines four efficiency programs:
The Town/Village agreement
on street and sidewalk maintenance,
A shared VoIP phone system with Madison County
The shared building agreement with the DeRuyter Free Library
Contracted electric supply
purchase in anticipation of a Solar Power Purchasing agreement with Madison County
These four programs are projected to save
the Town of DeRuyter approximately $47,000 over the next five years. I hope you find the plan informative and I welcome any
suggestions for future efficiency programs.
