William Bethune, who was not pres- ent at the Dec. 17 meeting, wrote in a Dec. 2 letter to commissioners that he obtained a 23.1-acre tract on Lassiter Road via a tax sale on the courthouse steps. Bethune said he has caught up on paying taxes on the property but . wanted the county to reimburse a total of $504.37 in penalties and interest. Commission chairman Greg Tapley said Bethune’s tax bill was erroneously sent to the property’s former owner, a mortgage company. County manager Iirn Hedges said Monroe County tax commissioner Lori Andrews support- ed Bethune’s efforts to be reimbursed. However, county attorney Ben Vaughn said even if Bethune may not have received formal notification from Andrews’ office about owing taxes; he should have known he owed some. 7" At Vaughn’s recommendation, com- missioners voted 4-0 not to reimburse Bethune. x 'I.”"'-‘;z . é! o“ Nav1centHeaith t we» . .
