At the January 20th 2016 joint Fishkill Village and Fishkill Town board meeting. Councilman Larry Cohen brought up for discussion. The possibility of a Hotel Tax. Much to my surprise, the village and town board members who claim to be fiscal conservatives, all appeared to be for it. Yes your town and village representatives are looking for a way to tax someone, in order to spend more money. Not only that, they were laughing about it. Laughing at how they were going to devour more tax dollars to spend. Instead of looking at ways to tax more. Fishkill needs to look into consolidating governments, whether it is within her borders or going to a county wide government or eliminating county government. This is the only way to save money. Everything else is nothing but a temporary fix.
NOTE: The SND 1.27.16 covered Mr. Cohen's comments also.
