(Richmond, IN)--An ordinance that would require any future buyer of the old Reid Hospital property to pay taxes regardless of their tax status went before Richmond Common Council Monday night. Councilman Bruce Wissel wondered if there was precedent for such a requirement. "Any potential purchased would come to the table with their eyes open," responded City Attorney AJ Sickmann. Council member Misty Hollis said keeping properties on the tax rolls is a high priority for many people. "When we're putting significant tax dollars into this piece of property, then we should try to get some of that tax money back." The ordinance was referred to the Finance Committee.
