A Message from the
Marlboro Central School District
Dear Community Member,
The Marlboro Central School District is opposed to the Orange County Industrial Development Agency's proposed PILOT agreement with Danskammer Energy, LLC., the current owners of the Danskammer power plant in the Town of Newburgh. We feel the proposed agreement is unfair to district residents in that a significant tax burden is placed on district homeowners for the benefit of a multi-billion dollar business conglomerate.
We are providing a sample letter to send to the IDA that you, as a community member and resident of the Marlboro School District, are encouraged to send to the IDA. Please feel free to personalize this template to relay your story as to how you have been impacted by significant tax increases over the last two years due to the reductions in taxes paid by the power plant.
We must continue to provide community pressure on the IDA so they do what is right - provide an agreement that has Danskammer pay its fair share of taxes in the community.
As was said at the IDA public hearing, "we welcome Danskammer with open arms, just not open pocketbooks. They should be a good neighbor and pay their fair share of taxes". Thank you.
