  • Sleepy Hollow voters asked for 82 percent property tax increase Oct 25, 2014 7:50 AM
    Voters in the tiny bedroom community of Sleepy Hollow will decide Nov. 4 whether to approve a property tax increase nearly doubling what homeowners already pay the village. The village is seeking to collect an additional $478,571 yearly from its more than 3,300 inhabitants. If approved, the owner of a $200,000 home would pay roughly $310 more in property taxes in 2015. It amount to an 82 percent tax increase that officials say is necessary to meet long-term capital expenses. “In about three to four years, our five-year capital fund will be pretty much depleted,” Village President Stephan Pickett said.
