Seneca Supers to get update on past due Indian taxes

The Chairman of the Seneca County Board of Supervisors feels it is imperative that Brad Jones, the Chairman of the Indian Advisory Committee, meet with the Board of Supervisors Standing Committee on Indian Affairs on Tuesday night (May 27, 2014) to update the committee on the monies past due and owed to the taxpayers of Seneca County by the Cayuga Nation.The most recent unpaid monies from Town and County levies have been transferred to the County Treasurer and a long overdue update is necessary to inform the citizens of Seneca County especially in these turbulent times of the Cayuga Nation leadership struggle.The owed money cannot be lost or forgotten if leadership changes hands. All debts are carried forward even with new “ownership”.Mr. Jones is an expert and a trusted advocate in these matters for the Seneca County Board of Supervisors. Seneca County is depending on Mr. Jones to present this past due information reported to the Treasurer’s Office as of May 1, 2014, as he is the most knowledgeable person regarding these monies owed for services.I assume Mr. Jones will bring his most recent list of properties purchased with Cayuga Nation money, and a current map showing the location of all parcels purchased.Chairman Hayssen further stated that Seneca County owes it to our taxpayers, and as a reminder to both sides in the Cayuga Nation leadership dispute, this money remains due for services rendered.Mr. Hayssen further stated the position of Seneca County has always been for the Cayuga Nation to pay for services rendered like every citizen in Seneca County does every year.
