Long Islanders want big reductions in their taxes and are willing to consider significant changes to achieve this including consolidation of back-office functions in the schools, consolidating non-emergency services, increasing contributions to benefits packages, placing caps on how much schools can raise from local property taxes. “This is a powerful beginning toward solving a problem that has plagued the region for years,” said Ann Golob, Director of the Long Island Index. But, she continued, “Long Islanders will need to embrace more changes if they want dramatic tax reductions.”
