McMahon, a leading proponent of New York’s three-year-old property tax cap, will present insights into the fiscal challenges facing New York localities and offer solutions for the local officials who must now operate their municipalities within the parameters of the tax cap.
Responding to McMahon’s presentation will be a panel of local officials, including Mayor Ernest Davis (Mount Vernon), Mayor Noam Bramson (New Rochelle), Mayor Randy Sellier (Pelham Manor), Mayor Anne McAndrews (Larchmont), City Manager Al Gatta (Scarsdale) and Village Trustee Chris Reim (Pelham).
“New York has taken an important first step in capping property taxes. Elected officials and policymakers now have to turn their attention to the cost-drivers that have given New York the highest property taxes in the nation,” said McMahon.
