The City Council will also hold a public hearing on a proposed local law to override the State enacted tax levy limitation. Here is the city announcement on that public hearing:
Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held by the City Council of the City of Rye on the 5th day of December, 2012 at 8:00 P.M. at City Hall, Boston Post Road, in said City, at which interested persons will be afforded an opportunity to be heard concerning a proposed local law to override the State enacted tax levy limitation. Copies of said local law may be obtained from the office of the City Clerk.
This public hearing is a formality and was not proposed by the city council because they intend to override the tax cap, city manager Scott Pickup said. The council's current proposed budget keeps taxes below the state mandated level.
