If you live in Depew, there may be a chance that you're one of the people whose taxes are going to increase soon. In the beginning of the year, the citizens of Depew voted to not dissolve the village into Lancaster and Cheektowaga.
Though, the budget for the 2017-2018 year will see increase of the tax levy by 3.9%. This is really effected the people on the Lancaster side. According to WGRZ:
Well, for people on the Cheektowaga side of the village, property taxes will actually dip slightly by about four cents per $1,000 assessed on a home. On the Lancaster side, however, property taxes will increase slightly for residents, by about 35 cents per thousand. For a $150,000 home, property taxes could increase by about $51 dollars.
The 3.9% increase this year is above the 2% cap for the Village of Depew.
