New program aimed at about 70 properties located in City of Batavia
Albany, NY – A bill (S.5196A/A.7570A) has passed the State Senate and State Assembly that would allow the City of Batavia to provide tax relief for residents willing to redevelop abandoned properties into owner-occupied single-family residences.
The new program would create a real incentive for residents to redevelop distressed properties since the high level of investment often required outpaces the value of the redeveloped home, keeping these types of properties vacant for many years.
As your State Senator, your views are important to me; your input helps me to best represent you, your family and our community. Earlier this year, I offered residents an opportunity to share their opinions with me in a 2015 Constituent Questionnaire.
The 2015 Constituent Questionnaire collected input on a number of important legislative issues, including New York’s economy, Common Core, minimum wage, and more. Thousands of residents, all across the 61st Senate District, filled out the 14-question survey either by mail, via Facebook or at my website.
The results of the questionnaire have been compiled, and I would like to share some of the figures with you:
