Public hearings on two local laws to expand property tax exemptions for senior citizens in North Tonawanda will be held Tuesday evening.
The hearings, to be conducted by Mayor Elizabeth C. Hoffman, are scheduled for 5 and 5:15 p.m. in the chambers of the Common Council in City Hall.
The first hearing will deal with a local law that would allow property owners age 65 and older to earn more money and still qualify for partial property tax exemptions on a sliding scale.
The second hearing is on a related law to allow senior citizens to qualify earlier for exemptions.
The laws, which were spearheaded by Third Ward Alderman Joseph F. Liberto, already have the unanimous approval of the Common Council.
The public hearings are required by the City Charter.
