Dutchess County residents ” Rhinebeck”

Do you think the Dutchess County Fair and Dutchess County Agricultural Society should be sharing more of the revenues they receive (from many events held throughout the year at the Fairgrounds) with Village and Town of Rhinebeck residents?

Fact: According to the August 24th article below from the Dutchess Beat (formerly Weekly Beat), “according to the town assessor the society hasn’t even had to file a standard application for an exemption, a 19-page document delving into activities and finances to determine exemption eligibility.”

For this reason I have already been in contact with NYS Comptroller’s Office; they have suggested contacting Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s office and the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance; I’m following up with them on this– your support in at least a thorough and serious look into this matter with a comment on this online petition appreciated (pass it on).
