Oneida Council may OK tax levy above state tax cap
ONEIDA — The City of Oneida Common Council will vote to raise the tax levy above the state-imposed limit on Tuesday night.
A 2011 state law caps the rate at which localities may increase property taxes in a given year, unless that locality’s governing body votes to exceed the cap. The council held a public hearing on the proposal during its Aug. 22 meeting, and will vote next week to officially waive the cap for fiscal year 2019.
The council is voting to give itself authority to raise property taxes beyond the state limit, but City Clerk Sue Pulverenti has said it likely wouldn’t exercise that authority. Instead, she says the measure gives the council the flexibility to address potential shortfalls during the budgetary process, and that the city has voted to do the same in years past.
Councillors will also receive and file letters from residents concerning the proposal to allow for private ownership of chickens in the city’s inside district. The body heard feedback on the measure during a public hearing on Aug. 7.
The six-member body meets on the first and third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at the Municipal Building, 109 N. Main St., Oneida.
