of school district monies, and together with seven percent of the combined amount of

principal plus accrued interest, be re-levied via the 2018 General Tax upon the real

property upon which the school taxes were originally imposed, so long as the

the Clerk of the Ulster County Legislature prior to the re-levying of the unpaid taxes;

and, be it further

RESOLVED, that when such re-levy (the unpaid tax, accrued interest, plus
