Stop LIPA Tax Hike

We the undersigned call upon Governor Andrew Cuomo to insure that any legislation to restructure LIPA include language that will protect the taxpayers of our Town by requiring that LIPA, and all others, abandon all existing Tax Certiorari proceedings against The Town of Huntington. Failure to include this language will expose the residents and businesses of our community to unprecedented real property tax increases. In accordance with the Agreement made at the time that LIPA was formed, there has been no increase in the assessment of the Northport Power Station for over twenty years; nonetheless, LIPA is now seeking over $270 million in refunds from the Town. If LIPA is successful, real property taxes in our School District will increase by almost 60% and other residents of our Town will faces property tax increases of over 15%. This will devastate our community. We call upon the Governor to ensure that his legislation protects our children and our quality of life by requiring LIPA to abandon the Tax Certiorari actions filed in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.


Sponsored by Supervisor Frank P. Petrone, Councilman Mark Cuthbertson, and the Town of Huntington


Stop LIPA Tax Hike Info


  • Alicia Laquidara This will be a big inconvenience for me and other young couples trying to start, and raise a family here.

  • Maureen Fritch This tax increase will cripple a majority of the residents in East Northport/Northport forcing many to leave without any possible residents to take their place. Taxes are too high already. It will also impact small business owners in the area who already pay high taxes and will put them out of business. This will be devastating to the community!! Stop Lipa Breaking Their Agreement!!

  • Joan Altieri Is your idea to run everyone but the horribly rich out of Npt/E.Npt?

    This will do it.
