The mayor of Northampton, Massachusetts has produced a detailed proposal that asks the city’s largest tax-exempt property owners to participate in a payment-in-lieu-of taxes, or PILOT, program. Mayor David Narkewicz is seeking public comment on the plan through the middle of November, and has scheduled three town hall-style forums this month.   Mayor Narkewicz talked about this proposal with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill
