Taxes are too high in New York, especially in Medina

I refer to a recent letter in the Letters to the Editor from Leonard Lauricella. We also live in the village in a 2-bed, 928 square foot house with comparable taxes.

The house was built in 1951 and other than siding, roof and over 15-year-old replacement windows has had little else done to it.

If our daughter and her husband and two grandchildren did not live nearby in Niagara County we would be headed for a state the doesn’t tax out SS income! The thought of continuing to live in the village is one that disrupts our sleep on a nightly basis!

NY State must be split so we are not taxed to support the masses that live in the big city! Furthermore, the towns and village must reduce the tax load on village residents!

Thank you.
