When I moved to Farmingdale village, the village taxes were a few hundred, but now I pay almost $1400 per year, and for what? They don't provide anything that the township does'nt provide, so what am I paying for? These municipalties are out of control with no oversight by anyone! Don't pay it, then out you go! This isn't peanuts we are talking about....
