The Southern Tier Tea Party Patriots has proposed three resolutions to help relieve the property owners in Chautauqua County from continually rising property taxes.
1) The sale of the Chautauqua County Home to private ownership is long overdue for many reasons. One main reason is that the public would not be supporting the continually rising payroll and benefits for another public sector union.
2) The labor and benefit contracts currently being negotiated in Mayville should be frozen for three years. The pension and health costs alone are no longer affordable to the property owners to subsidize year after year.
3) The Chautauqua County Airport should be turned over to a private manager as the taskforce recommended.
