As we work each day to cut costs and streamline operations, we’re making it a point to go after our tax debtors. Rockland County relies on property tax revenue to fund public health programs, highway maintenance, fire and emergency response training and many other critical services our residents and business owners depend on. Tax revenue, spent and handled wisely, is key to our quality of life and the future of our county.
As in most counties, cities and towns, tax revenue is Rockland’s largest source of income. Those of you who know me fully understand that I am a law and order-style leader. Tax delinquents must – and will – be held accountable. I will not allow those attempting to fleece the system to force the law abiding people of our county to foot their bills. It’s a matter of fairness and it’s also the law.
