Concra suing over back taxes on DSS building

Apr 25, 2012 7:28 am
Nathan Mayberg reports in the Register Star Anthony Concra is suing the city of Hudson Industrial Development Agency over $100,000 in back taxes the agency claims he owes on the property located at 25 Railroad Ave., home of the Columbia County Department of Social Services. According to Mayberg, the city claims Conra owes the money even though he "doesn't actually hold title to the property." Concra owned the land for more than 20 years before he entered into an agreement with the city Industrial Development Agency to build the DSS building. As part of the deal, Concra transferred the title to the IDA and was granted a tax break; the building was leased to the county beginning in 1991. Concra's attorney, Francis Roche, said there was a failure of both sides to meet and discuss the future of the contract once the lease agreement expired. Concra also named Columbia County, the city of Hudson, the Hudson school district and city assessor Garth Slocum as defendants. The county Board of Supervisors currently has a negotiating committee in place to make an offer on the property, but this litigation "adds a wrinkle" to that plan, Mayberg writes.
