A New York town is pushing a program that would let seniors work part-time to help pay off some of their property taxes.
One resident says she doesn't want to leave Greenburgh after 43 years. But the town is in Westchester County, which has the nation's third-highest homeowner property taxes.
The plan would be unusual, if not unique, in New York. Similar programs are considered successes in Colorado, Massachusetts, South Carolina and elsewhere.
A spokesman for the National Council on Aging says the program sounds interesting, as long as it isn't limited to menial work.
A town supervisor suggests creating about 25 slots for seniors and letting them work off $500 or so a year.
