City fails to tax $33M in new building

$300K in revenue at stake; Councilor Rivera calls for mayor to fire building commissioner


Nunes responded by directing Peter Blanchette to audit the permits issued in 2010, which found another 47 permits authorizing $10.3 million worth of new development also had not been reported to assessors.

Yesterday, Daou referred a request for a list of the 349 properties to Ianello, the budget director, who referred the request to City Attorney Charles Boddy, whose aide referred it to City Clerk William Maloney.

City Council President Frank Moran said he is asking Ianello, Peter Blanchette and John Isensee, the public works director who oversees building issues, to attend the council’s next meeting on Oct. 16.

“We’ve got to figure out how it happened,” said Moran, who is the Democratic nominee for the statehouse seat in the 17th Essex District.

“We need to make sure corrective action is in place as soon as possible.”
