COUNTY SETTLES WITH FORMER OWNER OF OLD REID

(Richmond, IN)--For eight years, Wayne County has tried to squeeze unpaid property taxes out of the former owners of the old Reid Hospital property.  Now, that chase has ended with a settlement.  The owners of Spring Grove Development gutted the old Reid property and skipped out on a tax bill that now totals $1.36 million.  One of those owners, Bob Ciprietti, has agreed to a $75,000 settlement.  It means that the county is collecting about 18 cents for every dollar owed.  Another owner, Ernesto Zamparini, never responded to the lawsuit.  The county won a default judgement against him for the full amount, but none of it has been recovered.
