Monroe Co. approves law to help with tax relief for lakeshore residents

People impacted by flooding along Lake Ontario are in line to get some tax relief in Monroe County.

Rochester, N.Y. - People impacted by flooding along Lake Ontario are in line to get some tax relief in Monroe County.

The Monroe County Legislature approved a law Tuesday night that allots $500,000 to reduce the assessed value of a property, in proportion to flood damages.

"I think helping property owners on the lakeside, certainly those who are going to be burdened with rebuilding their structures, is a good thing to do," said Monroe County Legislator Cynthia Kaleh (D-28), who represents the northwest part of Rochester.

Kaleh said there are three levels of funding that give assessment relief to property owners to help with rebuilding structure features, like a porch, but not waterfront features, like docks.
