Stop The Sun Tax In Evans NY

This petition had 202 supporters

We the undersigned are opposed to the Town of Evans Proposed Local Law # 1 of 2017 in which the Town will collect Property Taxes on Solar, Wind, and Farm Waste installed on Residential, Agricultural, and Commercial Properties in the Town of Evans. By the Town opting out of the RPTL 487, taxpayers will lose an Exemption they have had since first Enacted in 1977 for fighting Climate Change and Pollution. Even a temporary loss of this exemption could have an adverse negative effect on the Renewable Energy Jobs being created here in Erie County. If enacted, Solar will no longer be affordable for Homeowners, Farmers, and Small Businesses in this town. There is no Justifiable reason to opt-out, the Town of Evans has other options under the above mentioned Law to collect revenues it so desperately needs.
