Letters to the Editor

Roy Wilcox, New Scotland

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter as a follow up to the July 2 article (“Voorheesville Named Wealthiest Upstate District”) and the passing of New York State Bill # 01199, which took effect June 1, 2014. This bill covers a veterans’ exemption for school tax.
