Dear City of Racine Alderpersons,
It has come to my attention that a licensed Gaming Hall, located at 1661 Douglas Avenue, has failed to pay it's property taxes due since 2011 and is in arrears for $217,604.36. This is an outrage! And the Business license needs to be pulled ASAP, the County needs to begin the tax delinquent foreclosure process, the Building Inspector needs to ensure that the property meets code compliance, and it needs to be sold to a RESPONSIBLE Developer - once the tax foreclosure process is done.
See the attached property tax bill - from Racine County Tax Records
The Common Council needs to protect the taxpayers who pay their fair share and level the playing filed. Allowing a Gaming Operation to exist within City limits - which refuses to pay it's property taxes - IS AN OUTRAGE!
Especially since the Chairman of the Gaming Operation is none other than Talking Racine Panel Member and former Racine County Supervisor Ken Lumpkin!
