Actually, I need to correct myself. The area north of Middle Country Road and west of the Brookhaven/Smithtown town line is in the hamlet of St. James, while everything south of Middle Country Road and west of the town line is in the hamlet of Nesconset. So all the new additions to the mall are actually in St. James. This is according to the Suffolk County CDP maps (Middle Country Road is the southern boundary between Nesconset and St. James).

It's not like ALL of these, wouldn't be able to afford it, either. ALL of them, are usually affluent "snobs", that should be taxed out of existence !at a higher rate for the essential Life services, that they, basically, "steal" from other governmental entities.

If they want to be better than everyone else, LET EM SUFFER MORE AND PAY FOR IT ! People like wouldn't mind paying more...it would just make them feel MORE SPECIAL !

SO SLAM 'EM MORE !
at least your not angry

Seems to me that becoming a "Village" allows residents to "take out the trash". Seems worth it for this reason alone.

That's what I like about becoming incorporated, gives you a little more control.
Even though I can barely afford things now, I wouldn't mind paying a little more in village taxes if it improved my quality of life. It's a complex situation though from what I understand. Some inc villages actually save money and end up paying less depending on how they allocate services. If things aren't really planned out well it appears there could be little or no benefit at all.

I wish my village would do that. They say they will, but yet I still see "trash" all over the place.
