Scenic Development, LLC Pays Taxes

NEW CITY – On Wednesday, after being called out as the “largest non-residential” tax delinquent property in Rockland County, Scenic Development, Corporation (LLC) paid their taxes. Scenic Development owns over 150-acres within the 208-acre Patrick Farms property. Tax records indicated the company owed over $350,000 in back taxes since 2013. Rockland County Executive, Ed Day, announced last week that he was leading efforts to expedite the foreclosure process for non-residential tax delinquent properties that are confirmed vacant. Day stated, “This new policy will help to alleviate the financial burden that these properties impose on our taxpayers.” Day’s plan is to “aggressively” move to foreclose on tax delinquent “non-residential” properties in two years rather than the standard three. After working with Rockland’s Department of Finance, Day announced there are over 125 non-residential tax delinquent properties from Stony Point to Sparkill, totaling over $3.3M in revenue owed to the county. Scenic Development Corporation is the only company known to have paid their taxes since the announcement. For those with property tax delinquencies, Rockland County does offer payment options through the Finance Department. County Executive Day encourages property owners to make arrangements with the county and avoid foreclosure.
