Robert McKeon, the Director of TREND NY and Ron Deutsch, the Executive Director of Fiscal Policy Institute, are disappointed that the budget does not include a circuit breaker for property tax relief.
"When you look at it, very little has changed in New York," added Robert McKeon, who said the middle class income tax savings that came with the millionaires tax were negligible given the high property taxes.
"The problem with the property tax is that there is no limit to how much you can pay," said Robert McKeon, 47, a cattle farmer and co-founder of the Tax Reform Effort of Northern Dutchess. He pays $10,000 a year in property taxes, more than 10 percent of his income, Mr. McKeon said.

" said TREND Director Robert McKeon. "The truth is that a traditional tax cap will at best curb future increases, while a circuit breaker would provide immediate relief to many taxpayers and insure New Yorkers against unreasonable levels in the future. Taxpayers want a more equitable system of taxation, not just controlled spending. A circuit breaker could accomplish that. " McKeon added that the survey results confirm the testimony given to the Governor's Commission during the course of the many hearings.

Robert McKeon Chairman of the Agricultural Advisory Committee said on the Conservation Easement Law there were a few issues that still had to be addressed such as the length of time instead of 5 years.
Councilwoman Crane felt 5 years was too short and would like to see at least 8 years.
Robert McKeon said he would like the Conservation Advisory Committee to view the applications that are submitted when this law is passed, as well as the Planning Board having to review.

Robert McKeon, 163 Crestwood Rd., said that he was supportive of the project and that TGS Associates had incorporated many of the concepts proposed by Scenic Hudson. He said that the Agricultural and Open Space Advisory Committee, of which he was the Chair, would like to see that area defined as a receiving site and allowed more density, leaving open space in other areas of the Town.
Robert McKeon, Chair of the Agricultural and Open Space Committee, presented a plan to provide graduated tax relief to certain landowners who agreed to retain their land as open space for a specified number of years. He said that the plan was based on programs in place in several other Towns (Clifton Park and Perinton) in New York and had been presented at a public hearing on May 10, 2005. He stated that the Ag Committee believed that the Town had made a very good start toward protecting agriculture with its bond program but that the community must continue to investigate and use other tools to improve its protection program. He said that the public hearing had been continued to June 7, 2005.
Each member of the Board received a copy of the proposed law for review, and the Chair suggested that it be an agenda item at the next meeting on June 6, 2005. The Board agreed. Mr. McKeon said that the Agricultural and Open Space Committee would welcome opinions by Planning Board members, either individually or as a Board.
