The Delaware County Board of Supervisors and the Manchester City Council will meet in a special work session at 5pm tonight at the Manchester Fire Station. They will be discussing the special assessment for the new jail property.
The County Board of Supervisors say they were notified last year that there were deferred taxes on the parcels of land they purchased for the new Delaware County Sheriff’s Office and Jail. The site is located on West Howard Street on the far west end of Manchester.
The County Supervisors do not feel the county’s residents should be responsible for the $63,000 of deferred taxes on a ten-year old street.
However, the City says the County Supervisors were aware of the assessments before the County purchased the land and acknowledged they would pay them upon title transfer.
