Town catches up on payments owed for former Tryon land

PERTH -- At a recent town council meeting, a resolution was passed to reimburse the Fulton County treasurer's office $1,149.54, for seven buildings that were written off for the 2013 fire tax.

Supervisor Gregory Fagan said the seven parcels make up the proposed Tryon Technology Park and Incubator Center.

He said when the property was in the process of transferring from state ownership to the county and the Industrial Development Agency's possession, the state did not pay fire tax.

Instead, county taxpayers had to cover the cost, and Fagan said the town still needs to make the payment.

"We already collected for it and we have to pay the county back because it got paid," Fagan said.

Fagan said state officials paid the fire tax up until 2012, when the center was changing owners.

He said the IDA is now in possession of the property, and paid the 2014 fire tax.

The agency will continue to make the payment, as long as the property is in its control.

In order to fund each fire department within a county, a fire tax is collected. Fagan said the current tax rate is $1.40 per $1,000 of assessed value.

Councilmen Walter Kowakczyk and Peter Betz both voted to pass the resolution. Councilwoman Gay Lewandowski and councilman Timothy Korona were not present for the meeting.
