NYS Property Tax Freeze Credit
From: Mike Griffin, Patterson Town Supervisor

PATTERSON PROPERTY OWNERS GOT SOME GREAT NEWS THIS WEEK!

Property owners will be eligible for a rebate check under the NYS Property Tax Freeze Credit.

In order to be eligible for the 2016 rebate, next year’s budget for the Town of Patterson needed to meet two goals; comply with the Property Tax Cap and prepare an Efficiency Plan. The Preliminary Budget presented to the Public on October 7, 2015 met the Property Tax Cap.

In June, Richard Williams, Town Planner prepared and submitted to the State an Efficiency Plan on behalf of the Town of Patterson. The Town received notice on October 14th that the State has approved the Efficiency Plan.
Patterson is one of the first Towns in Putnam County to be notified by the State of New York that we have met the requirements for the 2016 Property Tax Rebate Program.

Budget documents are available on the Town Board page.

NYSEG Warning: 'Green Dot MoneyPak Card' Scams
NNYSEG and RG&E, subsidiaries of Iberdrola USA, are warning customers about callers who say they represent NYSEG or RG&E and are calling about billing matters. Some customers have been contacted and warned that to avoid having their service shut off they should purchase a “Green Dot MoneyPak Card” and contact the caller with the card information.

“We have repeatedly warned our customers about this scam and in most cases they become suspicious very quickly when someone attempts to take advantage of them,” said Mark S. Lynch, president and CEO of NYSEG and RG&E. “We urge our customers to never let their guard down.”

NYSEG and RG&E offer these tips to keep account information secure:

- NYSEG and RG&E will not call a customer for payment if an account is in good standing.
- NYSEG and RG&E will never ask a customer to purchase a debit card to make a payment.
- Customers who need to make an urgent payment should do so by calling NYSEG directly at 1-800-600-2275 to ensure that their account is properly credited.

Customers who have any questions about a call they have received for an overdue payment are likewise urged to contact NYSEG at 1.800-572-1111.    

If customers believe they have been scammed, they should immediately contact the Federal Trade Commission (http://www.ftc.gov/) and their local police.
