I’ve had discussions with the Mayor’s Office about property taxes and water bills and followed up with this letter cosigned by Congressman Rose & Councilman Matteo, requesting that the collection of both be suspended until the #COVID19 crisis comes to an end or is stabilized. I’m hoping Mayor de Blasio does the right thing here for struggling residents and businesses.

With property tax bills due April 1 and quarterly water bills set to be sent soon, we are calling on the mayor to provide relief by alleviating uncertainty for both local businesses dealing with government mandates and residents who are either sick or out of work due to these temporary closures.
