October 2015 Column - Embracing Excellence

There comes a time when you have to say enough is enough!  Every time a student from Erie County attends a community college in another New York State county we get a bill from that county.  For students attending Niagara County Community College, for instance, that bill is currently a little over $3,000 for a full-time student.  These bills are then passed on to property taxpayers in the students’ city or town.  In recent years this has meant additional property taxes of more than $300,000 per year for City of Tonawanda residents, over $450,000 per year for taxpayers in Grand Island and well over $800,000 added to the county property taxes of citizens of the Town of Tonawanda.
