town-seal1After 13 years of trumpeting “no tax increases” the Town of Fishkill Supervisor Joan Pagones now says that the new New York State 2% Property Tax Cap is going to create a problem for Fishkill.  The question that springs to mind is “Why?”  Why, after 13 years of not raising taxes when everything around us is going up do we suddenly have a problem with a 2% increase?  How did the Supervisor magically maintain the status quo, even though surrounding Town’s budgets dictated increases of 5, 15, 20 or even higher percent increases?  Thanks to a New York State Comptroller audit, we now know it was done with a shady shell game of borrowing, improper budget transfers and outright theft from districts that have gone lacking.
