Update: According to County Comptroller George Margos 74% of borrowing costs will be covered by the expected revenues leading to a projected tax increase of only 13.80/year. That is where the number mentioned in this article comes from. I know I make it seem like its a number that will be there from the start which it isn't. For more on that & more on the referendum in general check out Nick Giglias latest entry:
According to a new report from Nassau Countys office of legislative budget review, taxes will only go up $13.80 per year if the referendum is passed.
This is contrary to the numbers in the ballpark of $48 or $58 that have been thrown around for many weeks. An increase of $13.80 per year amounts to twenty six center per week. That's right, for slightly more then a quarter per week you can save the Islanders, save jobs, and ensure a massive amount of tax revenue is generated in the county for years to come.
