LAGRANGEVILLE, N.Y. --The Arlington Board of Education will vote on Tuesday whether veteran homeowners will get a tax break.
Arlington voters were surveyed Nov. 1-27 about the issue and a public hearing will be held from 7-8 p.m., according to the board's website.
Nearly 78 percent of people surveyed voted in favor of enacting the Alternative Veterans' Tax Exemption.
The public's input will be weighed before the board votes to enact or not enact the tax exemptions next school year, Superintendent Brendan Lyons said, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Veterans called upon the school board for approval of the exemption since an amended 2013 state law allowed for the tax breaks, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.
The meeting will be held at the Arlington Board of Education, 144 Todd Hill Road, LaGrangeville.
