Who is the villain?

Sep 21, 2020

To the editor:
It was interesting to read last Friday's edition, where the Millennium Compressor station which never applied for or received any tax reductions from the IDA (though it's clear they could have) being positioned as a community villain as they argue for a less onerous tax assessment, while the new Eldred Preserve dodged 10 years of badly needed school and property taxes is positioned as a community champion.
The Eldred Preserve's attitude that “no expense is too great” for this project is a slap in the face to their neighbors as the only expense too great is paying any taxes to the community in which it resides.
