Southampton~Tuckahoe School merger and your taxes

As many of you know, there is a proposal before the school boards about Tuckahoe merging with Southampton.  Tuckahoe has one elementary school.

There were 2 meetings last week, and it has been covered in the Press.  Be sure to read the pros and cons of this issue, as it will impact your taxes. I can email you the front page article that was in THE SOUTHAMPTON PRESS if you didn't see it, or you can find it on line.

This is a notice that was sent out that is interesting.

As currently envisioned, this merger will cause an estimated 8.7%
increase in the school taxes for residents of the Southampton district.
Residents of the Tuckahoe district will see nearly a 2/3 drop in taxes.
We urge Southampton residents to attend these meetings as we currently
do not see sufficient benefits to moving forward with the merger.
Please review the attached article for additional information.
