Whoopsiedoodle! Holcim says it made a boo boo

Jan 06, 2011 5:48 am
The Register-Star is reporting this morning that the attorney representing Holcim cement company in its current tax grievance regarding a waterfront property it owns in Hudson has said the heavily-publicized letter he sent to City Attorney Jack Connor claiming that no income is generated from the parcel was sent in error, and documentation reflecting the correct income and expenses associated with the dock is currently being pursued. Holcim, according to reporter Lindsay Suchow, is grieving a $4.5 million assessment it received on its deep water port dock for 2010/2011, which the company is claiming is actually worth $1.5 million. Pursuant to a court order issued by Justice Patrick J. McGrath, Holcim provided the city with an income and expense statement on Nov. 30, 2010 as part of the grievance process, which Connor then publicly claimed was "bogus." Holcim, the company that took over the former St. Lawrence Cement several years ago, has also been in the news of late for having furloughed a majority of its Catskill plant workforce for the recent holidays and beyond. The company was also named one of the state's top air polluters by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. For the full story, click here.
