PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – Peekskill residents will see a bigger property tax increase because of a recent court ruling that the City Council improperly held an eleventh-hour budget vote in December, according to The Examiner News and other media.

The state Supreme Court ruling – spurred by an Article 78 proceeding filed by Robert and Catherine Sullivan of Bleakley Drive -- means that the city manager’s original $37.2 million spending plan, which calls for a 5.9 percent tax increase, stands, The Examiner News reported.

That means that the average homeowner will pay $126 more in taxes, media reports said.

Had the court not voided the Council’s budget, taxes would risen 3.6 percent, and average tax bills would only have gone up by $79, The Examiner News article said.

Mayor Frank Catalina told The Examiner News that he was pleased with the court's decision.
