The reward for surviving Sandy may be higher taxes - Article Photos 6/7

A Nov. 5, 2012 photo shows public works employees tossing waterlogged bedding into a garbage truck in Point Pleasant Beach N.J. a week after Superstorm Sandy roared through. Debris disposal costs are a major expense for towns that were hard hit by the storm. Even with federal reimbursement for much of the cleanup and rebuilding expenses, these towns could be facing property tax hikes next year as a result of the unexpected costs, and the loss of millions of dollars of taxable property.
