Southampton Town code enforcement slaps landlord with 50 violations at six houses

Maybe all these folks who seem to be just jumping on the ' trash ' John bandwagon should actually get their facts correct and consider the source of all these allegations.Having known John for many years and having seen first hand the generosity he has shown so many I can"t believe most of thes vitriolic comments are the result of first hand knoledge.I have been in and worked on many of these so called substandard houses and can tell you that they are on a par with any low to middle income homes on the east end---and better than most.i have worked in many Group homes that are strickly houses made for exsorbatant profit for their absentee landlords that seem to come back year after year and for some reason these money trees thrive in perpetuity.John has been a safty net to many of his tenants and it seems a shame to allow what seems to be a single [or very few] deadbeats ruin a reasonable situation for so many families. If the Town was serious about doing something positive maybe they could grant some C O,S TO THESE SMALLER HOMES in a reasonalble amount of time so that it would cost the people building them a little less money.
When some people are earning 25 to 30 thousand dollars a year, the town's figure of 1500 to 2000 dollars a month for affordable housing seems a little bit absurd,but people and families still need to have a place to live and serve all the other folks making 20,0000 a month.John, I hope everything works out O.K. for you."

School Results: Tuckahoe Is Only District On South Fork To Reject Proposed 2012-13 Budget

Maybe the 4 golf courses in the Tuckahoe district should pay more in taxes. Iknow they have some kind of preexisting deal for a lower tax rate but when membership costs to some of these private clubs can run a million dollars it might be time to charge them the going rate for the homes that could have been paying taxes on that same property."

My property taxes have more than tripled since 1987 when I built my house in 1987.I can tell you for certain that my income has not come close to keeping pace with that sort of increase.I understand that our children deserve the best education but when Tuckahoe is faced with decling property values and more forclosures [plus stagnent wages for most self-employed ] tough decisions must be made .Less people to support the school with less money is obviously not a good combination.Maybe taxpayers are just out of money after paying fuel,electric,gas,insurance and grocery bills that have all gone up to have any more left to contribute.They are not just selfish or stingey."

Where are the Tuckahoe people?The're the folks who voted down their budget.Their teachers are some of the highest paid in the state.Maybe they could voice an opinion on the subject. It has been noticably quiet from that neck of the woods." May 17, 12 10:33 AM
