Romulus’ McDonald questions 2006 Seneca County law

In 2006, the Seneca County Board of Supervisors approved a local law denying a building permit to a property owner who is more than 90 days behind in property tax payments.

It is believed to be the only county in the state with such a provision.

Tuesday, Casey McDonald of Romulus, owner of many “distressed” properties for redevelopment, told the board that such law is unconstitutional and urged supervisors to rescind it.

    Not quite sure if it’s unconstitutional.. but shoot if he’s trying to fix it up to sell or rent and needs a building permit to do so you’re hurting him and yourselves and future tenants or buyers. Once it’s fixed I’m sure he’ll rent or sell it. So that’s a win.. Then he’ll probably be able to pay you (that’s a win) instead of taxes just piling up and another property just sitting there (another win) also some gets a place to live or rent… Just saying. And yes I understand taxes shouldn’t get behind etc etc but if he’s trying to make moves let him.
