TOWN OF PAWLING
DUTCHESS COUNTY, NEW YORK

A LOCAL LAW TO CHANGE THE GRIEVANCE DAY FOR ASSESSMENTS
Section 1. Title
This local law shall be known as “A Local Law to Change the Grievance Day for Assessments.”

This local law was adopted pursuant to authority contained in Section 512 of the Real Property Tax Law of the
