Tax Certiorari Case; MPM Silicones

Update on Tax Certiorari Case with MPM Silicones, LLC (Momentive)

 We strive to be proactive about sharing information. That is why in December 2018, the District mailed out to the community a December issue of the Fordian Journal.  As you may be aware, the newsletter presented information regarding the Tax Certiorari case where MPM Silicones, LLC (Momentive) is requesting a re-evaluation of its tax assessment. The two Towns of Waterford and Halfmoon and the school district are working closely together in evaluating and responding to MPM's claims.  Please use this link to read more about the case:  WHUFSD December 2018 Newsletter Final.pdf The District has recently been notified of important court dates for this case and felt it is important to keep our community informed of any progress with this case.  The following dates have been scheduled:

Preliminary appraisals need to be completed by April 30, 2019

An initial conference will be set with both parties to discuss the case with the Saratoga County Judge assigned to the case. This date is set for July 8, 2019
