But while the back taxes aren’t being discussed in court, town officials still believes the Beede group is responsible for paying them.
“It’s something we are very concerned about with them not paying the tax,” Poliquin said. “Now, every other taxpayer in town has to pay it off.”
Poliquin said selectmen have discussed whether they would take action to go after the back taxes
“I don’t know of anything definitive we can do,” he said. “There has been some talk, but nothing has been brought to us over what course of action could or should be taken.”
The group is continuing cleanup of the site, with the next major step being the construction of an on-site water treatment plant. It is expected to open this summer.
The cleanup is expected to take until 2017 to complete to the point where the site could be used. But groundwater cleansing will take up to two decades.
