Stop LIPA Tax Hike

11,474 Signatures Goal: 10,000

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.

    LIPA can go fuck themselves. Your plant, YOUR PROBLEM, not ours. Stop making it impossible and more stressful to live on Long Island. Especially Huntington NY which is an arm and a leg to live in. How foolish a company with so much money has to take more from us. What did you do for us during Hurricane Sandy? Nothing, that's why we had help come in from other states because you cant even handle that. You want my money? Where the fuck were you when I had no power for 22 days? Huh? $16,000 a year in taxes and you want more. FUCK YOU!
