The village boards in Potsdam and Massena passed measures last week allowing an override of the 2 percent tax levy cap, if necessary, in the 2013-14 budgets.

Massena Mayor James F. Hidy called the motion a “safety net” in case the board has to raise the property tax levy beyond 2 percent in its 2013-14 budget. The board will review the budget and projected taxes in the coming weeks. The village’s fiscal year runs from June 1 to May 31.

Potsdam Mayor Steven W. Yurgartis said the override was a precautionary measure to ensure the village didn’t inadvertently break the tax levy cap.
