West Haven’s plan to boost car tax revenue has stalled
WEST HAVEN — Last summer, Mayor Nancy Rossi informed City Council of an initiative to increase property tax revenue by informing full-time residents that they are required by law to register their vehicles with the town. It now appears that the initiative is stuck in neutral, as officials do not know if it has generated results.
The initiative was delegated to an intern from the municipal corporation’s solicitor’s office to compare a list of land sales against a list of places where vehicles are registered and see if there were any inconsistencies. Company attorney Lee Tiernan told council members at the time that the bureau was more interested in education than law enforcement at first.
