There is currently a property tax cap set at 2% or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. Some local governments such as Nassau County have circumvented the property tax cap by raising fees and adding speed zone cameras. Without this additional revenue Nassau County would be unable to balance its budget. Should NYS Government's 2% property tax cap also apply to fees and fines?

At the corners of Elm Drive and Midwood Cross (neighborhood of Country Estates in East Hills) and Glen Cove rd. are bus stops on a hill that are extremely dangerous. The bus stops should be graded and made flat so in inclement weather individuals aren't at risk of slipping off the hill into on coming traffic.
