FREE” FIREWORKS ARE NOT FREE

To the Editor,

It would appear the outgoing Director of the Dept. Of Tourism just refuses to get it. With the taxpayers enduring the last three years of large property tax increases, the Dept. of Tourism is ending 2013 by wasting taxpayer dollars on a fireworks display. The fireworks are not FREE as stated on ch 12 news but funded by county tax dollars and matched by state tax dollars. We all pay county and state taxes so where is the “FREE”? As we step into 2014 the taxpayers of Rockland look forward to a New Day in Rockland Government.

Sincerely,

Dave Veraja
