Board of County Commissioners mulls legal approach to Peabody bankruptcy, property taxes 21.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot

The exact amount of unpaid taxes was not known at press time Monday. Peabody has 125 distinct property tax accounts spread over Routt County, according to County Assessor Gary Peterson, and a portion of the overall 2015 tax bill due the county’s general fund was paid in January. County Finance Director Dan Strand was working Monday to refine the total amount of unpaid taxes. “Routt County is willing to wait and allow the (bankruptcy) process,” to be carried out, County Manager Tom Sullivan said Monday. And it’s fairly certain that any future inquiries Routt County might make about the status of Peabody’s property tax delinquency would be through an outside attorney ...

WWF Australia says it has been advised by the federal director of the Liberal party, Tony Nutt, that no taxpayer money will be sunk into the venture
