New York State Real Property Tax Law § 925, provides as follows:
"Payment of taxes by mail, when enclosed in a postpaid wrapper (envelope) properly addressed to the appropriate collecting officer and deposited in a post office or official depository under the exclusive care and custody of the United State Post Office shall, upon deliver, be deemed to have been made to such officer on the date of the United State Postmark on such wrapper. The provisions of this section shall not apply in the case of postmarks not made by the United States Post Office. A postage meter postmark is not a postmark made by the United States Post Office and, therefore, is not within the provisions of Real Property Tax Law §925. Payments cannot be deemed timely because of a postage meter mark date on an envelope containing a tax payment (Op. New York State Comptroller 69-170).
If taxes are not received until after the due date, they are not paid until after the due date unless they fall squarely within the provisions of § 925 of the Real Property Tax Law, and the interest must be added and collected. No Town Officials or employees can waive the interest (Op. New York State Comptroller 68-626).
It shall be the responsibility of any person, either as owner, occupant, lessee, agent and/or tenant of premises or property as defined herein, to dispose of any and all litter, garbage, refuse and/or junk on premises or in the right-of-way of a roadway, public or otherwise, upon which such premises or property fronts, or adjoins, or to which such property is subject, in a safe and sanitary manner and keeping the premises free and clear therefrom.
The 96 gallon recycling can must have the metal bar facing the road in order for it to be emptied. If the metal bar is not facing the road it will not be emptied.
