The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.

Water, Taxes, Raccoons and Vandalism Part of Biggsville Board Discussion

May 7th-the Biggsville Village Board members and President Dale Allenbaugh heard resident Mike Hendrickson ask for a business variance for his business. "Scrog's Hot Rod Shop'.

The village pointed out that only one water and sewer was serving the rental house and business. President Allenbaugh suggested to bill both house and business and not require a separate service installation until summer.

A business variation was granted to Mike Hendrickson to allow his business to operate and both the house and business be billed for water and sewer.

Hendrickson questioned "Why two bills?" and it was explained that two separate users are using the water and sewer.

Allenbaugh received a back taxes bill amounting to $218.75 from Glen Olson who has paid the taxes for the property in Reid Park.

Olson advised Dale that the village had use to this property during this time. A quit claim deed was filed on October 2007 and eighteen days later the partial was sold for taxes. The back taxes had to be paid to reclaim the partial.

This problem was caused when the proper paper work was not completed. The village has filed for tax exemption in November 2007.
