    STOP THE TAX SHIFT
    Tax Shifting is Bad for New York

    The New York State Conference of Mayors created a single-issue website www.StopTheTaxShift.org, to defend taxpayers from tax shifts that may be pushed from the state onto cities and villages.

    Local officials and private citizens can and should use this site as a resource to help educate state leaders, legislators and opinion makers on those state mandates that are the key culprits in obstructing local officials efforts to control spending and property taxes.

  • mix13THE MIX
    Municipal Innovation eXchange

    The Municipal Innovation eXchange (The MIX) is a collaborative effort of the four statewide local government associations that represent every municipality and school district in the state. NYCOM, the NYS Association of Counties, the Association of Towns of the State of NY, and the NYS School Boards Association have created The MIX to help local governments maximize their effectiveness and efficiency through education, compiling and sharing local success stories, identifying and reforming barriers to efficiency, and establishing standards for evaluating when a shared service makes sense.

    Click HERE for presentation materials from June 19th.

    For more information on The MIX, follow @TheMIX_NYS on Twitter, or contact the NYCOM office.
