ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon says the county has just received two checks from Shoppingtown Mall.
The first check was for just over $110,000 to pay for school taxes for the 2019-2020 school year. The second check was for $25,000 and is the first payment owed to the county for back taxes totaling nearly $10 million.
The checks are a direct result of a temporary order from the Federal Bankruptcy Judge in Pittsburgh who has been hearing the case since the Mall filed for bankruptcy in August.
The judge has given a temporary value for Shoppingtown Mall of $4.5 million, but can reconsider that amount once a final ruling is made in the case.
The County Executive calls it “a small victory but a victory nonetheless.”
The entire ruling is below:
