find a tax to (true) FMV total assessment ANYWHERE in this country that is HIGHER than Schenectady! Home values are plummeting in Schenectady and very FEW property owners are grieving their assessments and pushing through to the Appeal level. Appears that NO ONE looks at the assessments up and down their own street to see the GROSS INEQUITIES in assessed values!

where can we find online copy of the city's 2012 financial statements? to see for ourselves.

city borrowed 7 million more in May 2013 than in May 2012 - what part does this additional debt play in the 'structural fiscal health of the city?' where are the additional revenues coming from to pay off this additional $7 million?

Is this too hard to explain? Better that nobody knows?
