TAX NOTICE

To all Town of Hancock taxpayers.
Because of an email I received on February 7th from Gov. Cuomo’s office, Townships were able to apply for a 21 day extension allowing taxpayers to pay there taxes without penalty.
I immediately replied because we were only given until 5:00 pm on February 8th to apply.
An Executive Order was issued by the Governor last Thursday, February 14th.
I didn’t receive official notice until today February 19th.
I realize this only gives taxpayers until 5:00 pm, February 21st, but I guess a few days are better than none.

Jerry Vernold,
Town Supervisor

For immediate Release:

Town of Hancock Explores Residential Bulk Electricity Purchasing Program

Program will help lower residential electricity rates and protect consumers from predatory marketers

At one public session to be held at Town Hall on Wednesday, November 29th residents of the Town of Hancock can learn about Community Choice Aggregation, the new residential bulk electricity purchasing program.  The session will be held at 6 PM at Hancock Town Hall, 661 West Main Street, Hancock, NY 13783.  Residents are encouraged to bring their questions and electricity bills.

The Town Board passed a resolution to explore Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). CCA is a new opportunity in the state that allows cities, towns, and villages to pool the electricity accounts of residents and small businesses within their municipal boundaries. The bulk purchasing of electricity increases a consumer’s individual buying power, which will result in lower electricity rates for residents.

CCA Programs also help protect residents from bad energy deals. Additionally, communities have the power to customize their programs based on their values and priorities, such as sourcing renewable, ‘green’ energy.  Consumers who do not wish to participate in the program can opt-out, remaining with the utility.

The Municipal Electric and Gas Alliance (MEGA) was selected by the Town of Hancock to fulfill the role of CCA Administrator, overseeing the creation, development, and implementation of the program. No taxpayer or government funds will be used in the creation or operation of the program.

Join representatives from MEGA and the Town Board at the public education session on November 6th or visit megacca.org to learn more.
