WHAT THIS COSTS YOU THE TAXPAYER:
Average cost of 15000..00 per demo = 300,000.00
Total assessed value lost by demolition = 2,600,340.00
Total taxes Currently due (likely Never paid after demo) 146,473.30
Total Annual Tax revenue generated 91,738.98
In summary: we are spending your tax dollars to demo property worth 2.6 mil we lose 146+K in tax revenue owed and annually we will lose another 91+K. The vacant lost will sit for decades and the city will wind up paying the cost to maintain them.THIS MAKES NO SENSE!
Please feel free to contact your councilman and ask them why we are doing this?
