From the Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight, the City of Ypsilanti forgets to bill DDA taxes.

A city hall tattler says the City didn’t include the DDA Operating Millage in the September 2010 tax bill.

They discovered the problem in March when they found the DDA fund was short about $70,000. The City is planning to send out a third tax bill to all DDA property owners this summer. The Tatt wonders if the DDA or the City will eat the cost of the third mailing, but in reality, it is the taxpayers that will have to foot the bill.

Not too sure how they are going to explain this screw up and no word if late fees start piling up from last September or from when they send out the revised bill. Thankfully the Tattler Tower is outside the DDA, so her bill is paid.
