West Endicott Victory Over AttemptedPosted: July 18, 2013
BCIDA Tax Ripoff!
All tax paying residents of Broome County should give thanks to the struggle put up by the residents of West Endicott. These residents fought and lost a battle with the Industrial Development Agency over the movement of a toxic chemical plant into their neighborhood. But when the IDA wanted to get a tax exemption for this plant the residents were again ready to battle. The tax break request by the IDA has been dropped. The National Pipe and Plastic Company will pay their village, town, school and county property taxes. The residents did what the Town of Union Board did not have the guts to do.
