Here’s news from the Town of Mamaroneck, via Supervisor Nancy Seligson:
In the last year how many times has your opinion been seriously and thoughtfully requested? When was the last time anyone asked for your input before a decision affecting you and your family was made? Well, it’s happening right now in the Town of Mamaroneck as the Town Board appeals to residents to weigh in on issues like living conditions, transportation, housing, recreation, use of property taxes, collaboration among the Town and the Villages of Mamaroneck and Larchmont, and access to Town officials.
The invitation is in the form of an electronic survey accessible on the Town website, www.townofmamaroneck.org. Our goal is to receive as many responses as possible to provide the Town with a broad cross section of opinions.
“The Town Board is taking a long term approach to strategic planning and resident input is critical to our efforts,” Town Supervisor Nancy Seligson explains. “Our local government needs to respond to growing pressures such as the state-imposed property tax cap levy, regulatory mandates, high worker pension and health care costs and severe revenue reductions. To be effective we need input from our residents.”
The clock is ticking as the September 3, 2012 survey deadline approaches.
All Mamaroneck Town residents including the residents of the Village of Larchmont and the Village of Mamaroneck are encouraged to participate in the survey. Every member of your household can complete his or her own form.
They survey is located on the Town website, www.townofmamaroneck.org. Click on the box in the upper right hand corner of the opening page above the “Real Property Reappraisal Project” portal. That will take you directly to the electronic form. If you don’t have an Internet connection you can complete the survey on computers at the Mamaroneck Public Library on 126 Prospect Avenue, or the Larchmont Public Library at 121 Larchmont Avenue. For a paper survey form please call the Town Supervisor’s office at (914) 381 7805.
Take just a few minutes to help your elected officials make the decisions that will affect the Town, you, and your family for perhaps the next generation.
