Public Hearing Road Local Law

Town of Roxbury, New York

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held before the Town Board for the Town of Roxbury at the Roxbury Town Hall on the 9th day of November 2017, at 6:30 p.m., regarding the adoption of a proposed Local Law entitled “Road Takeover Law of the Town of Roxbury”. This Local Law is proposed to ensure that the Town is both consistent and fair to proposed developers and existing taxpayers alike by requiring sufficient new tax base (Assessed Value) including both land and buildings to support any proposed new roads at current Highway Tax rates. In return for this, the Town agrees to take over approved roads that are built to accepted Town specifications and that have the required amount of Assessed Value to support them.
Copies of the proposed Local Law shall be available at the time of the hearing and shall be available at times prior to and after the hearing at the Town Clerk’s Office during normal business hours for the purpose of inspection or procurement by interested persons.

Dated: 10/17/17
