ONE MIL = $3.10 PER WEEK
Plymouth Taxpayers! A one mil cut in taxes means approximately
$3.10 a week in savings for the regular taxpayer. For $3.10 a week
what are YOU willing to Give Up?
- The Bemis Street Project?
- Road Repairs?
- Teacher Layoffs?
- Police Layoffs?
- Education Programs?
- Fire Equipment for our Volunteer Firemen?
- Perhaps a combination of All of the above?
What do the Republicans plan to cut for a one mil decrease?
Do they have a secret plan? No one knows!
One mil means a Big Cut to the Town Budget of $747,600.00
but only $3.10 per week to You. Is it worth it to any of You?
Do we go backwards instead of forward?
Please Vote Mayor Festa and the Democrats on November 5th
and Keep Plymouth moving Forward!
BEWARE EMPTY CAMPAIGN PROMISES!
Recently, our Republican opponent has proposed a
1 mill tax reduction if elected. That sounds great, right?
But what does that really mean to you the taxpayer, and
more importantly, how will that affect our community?
For the average residential assessment of $147,500, a
1 mill tax cut equals $147.50 /yr or a savings of $12.30 /mo.
To achieve this modest monthly savings requires a $757,600
cut in the General Fund budget, or a 2.1% across-the-board
reduction for all town departments and the school system.
In terms of payroll, this $757,600 would require that 13 full-time
town or school employees be fired to achieve a 1 mill tax cut.
Here is the key question to ask - exactly what programs
will be eliminated and which employees will be laid off? If
applied uniformly, the Board of Education would have to cut
$467,800 and lose a corresponding amount of state grant
money. Is this what you really want just to save $12.30 per
month? Don't be fooled by empty campaign promises!

Dear Plymouth Residents,
We are proud to announce that beginning on September 23, 2011 we will be distributing single stream recycling containers to residents of Plymouth. The Plymouth Town Council voted to purchase the containers at their meeting.
Containers will be placed at each driveway and at each condominium. Recycling collection will begin with the new containers on October 3, 2011.
Recycling makes financial sense because the cost to recycle is $20.00 per ton versus $64.50 per ton to dispose of solid waste.
Communities that have implemented a single stream recycling collection that allows all recyclables to be comingled in one large container have shown a significant increase in recycling tonnage. Every ton of recycling saves the town $44.50. Please utilize this opportunity to recycle. Click on the following links for more information.
