Supers wrangle with new tax cap

— The Peru supervisor described his position on the tax cap as “qualified support.”

“They have to really start tackling these unfunded mandates that come down,” Glushko said.

Village of Lake George Mayor Robert Blais said the cap would require cuts in his budget.

Lake George committed to a $3.1 million improvement to its wastewater treatment plant and pump station, which will eat up a large portion of the shrunken budget.

As a result, the village will have to consider employee layoffs and holding fewer tourist events such as fireworks and park concerts, Blais said.

The Lake George supervisor said he was opposed to the tax cap so long as it was not balanced with mandate relief.
