PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- The Port Chester Housing Authority has 60 years to pay back more than $260,000 in back taxes to the village.
The village board approved 5-2, a payment plan that will see the agency pay the village $20,575. The rest of the balance will be paid back $338 a month over the next 60 years.
The housing authority, which runs 340 units in the village and is funded through rent payments and federal funding, hasn't paid its sewer taxes since 2014, according to LoHud.
The housing authority said it plans to pay back the funding using money from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, but if HUD reduces or terminates its funding, the contract will be terminated, according to LoHud.
Trustee Gene Ceccarelli, who voted to approve the agreement, called it" disgusting" and "unconscionable." Trustee Bart Didden, who also voted to approve the agreement, said it was "lousy."
