Residents and officials are facing the reality of what it would look like for the village of South Nyack to dissolve.
Those who initially petitioned to do so would be getting exactly what they want - lower taxes.
Property owners would save an average of $1,400 a year, according to a report by a consultant company brought in by the village to evaluate what dissolution would mean for the people who live there.
Elected official positions, including mayor, would disappear.
Orangetown would begin providing municipal services like police, public works, planning, zoning, clerk services, building inspections and governance.
That means most of South Nyack's village employees would be out of a job. But some of them face the opportunity of new positions working for Orangetown.
Other services, like schools, fire, EMS and utilities wouldn't change.
Residents will be able to vote on whether to dissolve the village on Dec. 17.
