Gounardes plans property tax forum

Democratic State Sen. Andrew Gounardes will hold a property tax forum to give constituents in his Southwest Brooklyn district the opportunity to make their voices heard on New York City’s confusing property tax system that opponents said hurts the outer boroughs and the middle class.

The forum will take place on Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Jewish Community House of Bensonhurst, 7802 Bay Parkway, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

State Sen. Brian Benjamin, chairperson of the Committee on Budget and Revenues, will co-host the forum with Gounardes.

The forum will provide Gounardes and Benjamin with an opportunity to gather feedback and New Yorkers and inform state policy-making, according to Gounardes’ office.
