You hear us talking all the time about City and County corruption. This is more of it. Add to that the Health Board and the Commissioners sscrewing the taxpayers out of $250k every year by stonewalling the Court consolidation. We need to challenge these people at every turn. All they want from us is our money and we are in the way. Stand up to them.

There is a finance meeting going on right now in Council Chambers.

Maybe some of the points being brought up here will be brought out by these council people....

Sounds to me as misappropriation of funds. What's their salaries probally way to much for what the do, and if they were in financial straits why did they not make adjustments to their current staffing.

I e-mailed a solicitation to sign the petition to Head of Community Development Mike Keys and Mayor Franklin over the weekend.

I would hope that this gentleman and Mr. Keys would love to see transparency with this organization.

So do a search as Dubcity suggests and sign it before they do. I am sure they will not ignore this.

How pathetic. And the one man running this non-profit into the ground? He will insist it's a private company and therefore continues to deny any need for tranparency. I signed that petition and encourage everyone commenting on this article to do the same.

Investigations must occur, indictments if cause is found. At the very least, forced resignations of those responsible for this fiasco.

Where did Sunshine's money GO? There is an online petition circulating that asks for Sunshine's financial records to be made public. Paste the following in a search browser to find and sign-

The Boards of Sunshine of Warren and Warren Redevelopment and Planning.: Make their audited financial statements open to the public.

Why is Sunshine being treated different, than you or I would. Miss paying your property taxes twice and see what happens. Your place will be set for sheriffs sale, for delinquent back taxes. Why has that not happened with Sunshine. Any property's that are owned by Sunshine, should have leans placed on them if sold. All monies received for the property would got towards paying all back taxes. If these back property taxes are not paid in full in 60 days, then there should be sheriffs sales immediately. Guess who you know, does really mean something after all.

If anyone else was behind on taxes their property would be confiscated and auctioned off.

msmith82, in an article last week it said those funds were going to administrative pay. So he is paying himself but not his debt. Hahahahahahaha. What kind of business can continue to operate that way?

My fellow Warrenites, this issue would have never come to light if it had not been for the Trib reporting on it and you discussing it on this forum. People are running scared, so keep up the pressure. Now you have proof that the 'priviledged' are not bound by the same laws that we peons are.

Sunshine gets government grants am I correct in saying that? Why are they not getting investigated for not paying the taxes. They still collect rent money and get federal money I want to know where that money is going. I hope it is not going in someone else's pocket.

This is the second time for a payment plan for this so called non profit. Maybe all the taxpayers should have a payment plan????

Enough with Sunshine, the sun was already set when Iannucci adopted the mess. The Trib needs to investigate all the delinquent properties. Ask the collector's why the property at 1401 Pine SW.(former superior walls) is being used by a Larry Frango's as a junk yard and storage building with yes $205,000.00 in back taxes when the he was supposed to pay it as part of the sale of the property.When will Frangos transfer it in to his name? I am sure some commissioner will forgive the taxes owed by this person because it is a valuable business.Why is this hidden ownership property not foreclosed on? No wonder all the services subsidized by property taxes are getting reduced, schools included.

Why would Sunshine not have to submit a formal written plan? It just makes no sense. They should disband this organization and fire all the Sunshine employees who obviously don't know what the heck they are doing especially Iannucci.
