Pelham Manor village board sets public hearing on property-tax exemption for senior citizens

The Pelham Manor Board of Trustees voted Feb. 13 to schedule a public hearing for Monday’s meeting on a local law that would grant a property-tax exemption to certain senior citizens.

The law is required to put into place changes adopted by the state legislature.

“It is something that has been around for some time,” said Village Manager Lindsey Luft. “This law would be new to Pelham Manor. As of now, ten citizens in Pelham Manor could qualify for this law. If this law was adopted, the tax cost could be beneficial and decreased for those senior citizens within Pelham Manor.”

The exemption would apply to people 65 or older who have certain income limitations.
