To the Editor:

Any increase in taxes, especially sales tax — however nominal, such as the proposed 1/8 % sales tax increase — is not acceptable.

Government waste and inefficiency should be the target to find monies to support any clean water initiatives. Our cost of living on Long Island is one of the highest places to live and to do business. We are at a significant disadvantage to other areas and it is stifling business productivity and the ability of homeowners to maintain their property in good order. We need to fund any upgrades to current septic systems by finding monies already in the coffers that are being wasted.
