Victory residents vote on village dissolution

VICTORY, N.Y. – Residents of the Village of Victory will vote Tuesday on whether or not to dissolve the village at the end of 2014.

Victory Mayor James Sullivan says he is in favor of the village's dissolution, citing a poor economy and way to move village government forward.

"And what I mean by that is, to things better together and more efficiently, it's important to have a combination of services from different government to do that. It's more efficient and it's less cost," said Mayor Sullivan in a previous interview with NEWS10.

Victory is one of two villages within the town of Saratoga. With an estimated 650 residents, it's also one of the smallest villages in the state.

According to Mayor Sullivan, who is not seeking re-election, residents can expect to see as much as a 50 percent tax saving if they vote "yes."

"And with the CETC, the citizen's empowerment tax credit, it could be upwards of 53 or 54 percent for some," he said.
