Patrick Farms Developers Owe Taxes to Rockland County

According to County officials the developers of Patrick Farms where 496 housing units are set to be built, have not paid school, county, town, or village taxes on the property since 2013. Officials stated that Scenic Development LLC and Scenic DEvelopment SM LLC, Monsey based construction companies, are developing five of the six parcels of land, two of which owe $607,788 in taxes. One of these parcels houses the Rockland Sheriff’s Department stables for the horse unit and Sheriff Falco stated that he is negotiating with another location to move them to but thinks the county should attempt to take ownership of the current stables. County Executive Ed Day stated “The only reason why this scam came to light was because my administration dug deep to find it and issued an Executive Order ensuring that any contract, including this one, will escrow any owed monies to taxpayers. The Sheriff was repeatedly urged to stop doing business with these developers and find another location.” The county has sent letters to 800 property owners in Ramapo threatening foreclosure if taxes are not paid by the end of the year. Last year development of the property was halted because the U.S. Army Corps uncovered wetlands on the land, leading the state to hold back on approving the permits.
