A member of the Erie County Fiscal Authority is pushing to eliminate a proposed property tax hike in the county budget.

Finance committee chairman Brian Lipke is requesting that County Executive Mark Poloncarz review the budget to identify any discretionary spending that could be reduced. Poloncarz's budget includes a 3.4 percent hike in property taxes.

Lipke asserts that residents are overtaxed already and he is hoping the tax hike can be avoided.
