MORE CHA CHINNGG- MON GENERALE STEWART
Dear Mr. Stewart,
Brian informs me that you need more help in sorting out this CRA mess and that you have asked your good friend Judge Betleski to help. I would hazzard a guess that to do so will cost us more more money for the attorneys and I know Mr. Chandra is looking forward to spending many more years on this lucrative legal cash cow but…
Morning Journal August 15th
Chandra said he expects it to be a while before the legal issues are completely resolved.
”We’re looking at a process that could take years to sort out,” he said
But I am here to inform you we cannot afford your wheeling dealing and political posturing.
So for the sake of helping out my county and my city from the spiraling court and legal costs let me help out here. Brian tells me you want to know which properties to put on the tax exempt list . Here- this might help from the judges at the Supreme Court
It is ordered by the Court that the requests for oral argument are denied and a writ of
mandamus is granted to compel the Lorain County Auditor to place the 355 properties in
CRAs 3 and 4, which had been certified to him by the Lorain Housing Officer as exempt,
on the tax-exempt property list for Lorain County, consistent with the opinion rendered herein.
Now the other little thing that seems to be worrying you is the people that applied “after” their homes were built.Maybe I can help out there too- you see I asked that question of another high priced attorney that we are having to pay for thanks to YOU and your Deputy and tax settlement specialist-
Now maybe you don’t like or trust their answers but considering they were right about your job decription and won in the Supreme Court you might want to listen carefully- just some free advice !
This is an applicant driven program, I have been unable to find anywhere in the ORC where there is a time limit to apply for the abatement -is there one?
Correct,there is no time limit.(NOTE: there maybe a limit where “people” may wish to delay due to personal issues.There is no statutory limit to the time when an application may be filed after the legislation creating the area is approved. People may wish to delay when they file for various personal reasons, change in family or employment are possible examples.)
Deputy Auditor Ana Griffith on September 11th , 2007 send a letter verifying to a property owner in CRA 1 that not only will they receive 2.5 reduction in land and abating the home (100%) through 2020.This Infill housing was also included in the CRA program JUNE 2006.(
they paid a fee??) maybe she can explain………
