READ THIS BLOG: Has Brockport Village Government been Compromised?
Attention Brockport Village taxpayers!!!
Village Tax relief is in YOUR hands! It's time to act, it's time to take back control of local government and ask for a Village Reorganization Plan
If you haven't read our main page on the GRACE Law, please take the time to do that now. It's important that you get the facts, and the numbers involved here to truly understand how important it is to all NEW York residents to support Government Reorganization.

We have added a Frequently Asked Question Page providing answers to the most common questions. You can review the FAQ Page HERE
We have also added a Blog Page on this subject, with facts, expert analysis and other information that helps frame problems & solutions. Read that BLOG PAGE HERE
Shortly there will be other empowered citizens canvassing your Brockport village neighborhoods for signatures on a Village Reorganization Referendum Vote. They will have a signature sheet for you to sign in support of that vote. Please take the time to listen, read about the issues and sign.
Once the required amount of village voter signatures are collected (10%), these forms and the cover letter that contains them, will be delivered to the Brockport Village Clerk.
After that the Village will review all signatures and set a Referendum Vote Date, which we think may be November 3, 2020
You can review the Signature Sheet & Cover Page by clicking the linked images below:

Signing this Referendum Vote petition allows all of us, living within the Village of Brockport, a chance to FINALLY see what "no village taxes" would really mean to the village & the Town of Sweden.
Voting yes on the Referendum is a vote to insure that the GRACE law is initiated in our village and we will see what our own Government Reorganization Plan looks like and how we all might benefit from changing local government processes.
People can speculate on what the plan might say, including our elected Village Officials, but until the plan is actually CREATED no one really knows what will be gained or lost. The PLAN will end all the speculation.
Unless Brockport Village Officials request the Village Reorganization Plan themselves, or Village Residents sign a Referendum Vote REQUESTING that the Village Officials do their jobs, nobody can know or discuss what might be gained or lost with a local village reorganization...including our Mayor.
Signing this Village Referendum insures the truth will be uncovered and shared with all village residents.
Two things will be eliminated for certain, according to the GRACE changes, if a Village Reorganization Plan includes a Consolidation or Dissolution:
Current Village Property Tax will end for all village residents after dissolution.
Village Government & Village Elected Officials will cease within the State Govt. structure after dissolution.
