Since they had nothing to say in the issue, I'll toss another 'hot potato" their way for them to juggle for a time. In poking my nose in various places and into other people's business, I gathered some interesting and puzzling information. I find that the property in question was removed from taxation in June of 1973 because, as the one member of T.D.C. told me, they found the rental income was insufficient to pay same. I have a copy of Real Estate Mortgage dated Aguust 3, 1973 (less ithan two months after tax exemption was granted) and recorded on August 6,1973, for purposes of building anoth- r five-plex housing unit. Did the financial situation improve that much in such a hort period of time? One would hardly expect a group of h'rewd businessmen to get in- olved deeper in a losing finanC' al veniture. In the recorded copy of the above Real Estate Mortgage, I ,lso find the following covenant and agreement among a ist of 19 to be kept and performed as follows: No. 1 on the list of 19 — "The- Borrower shall comply with all state laws and regulations applicable to the said business and shall pay taxes, charges and assessments as the same may become due." I have a suspicion there may be a conflict of interest among some of the members of the corporation, which if true, should be cause for their resignation or removel from mem- Dership of any corporation involving use of public funds such as is the situation with T.D.C. I also feel that the public should be given or have access to all financial records of any corporation involved in use of public funds, whether for "charitable and benevolent" purposes or for private gain, f /&/ Orlo E, Zwiefel Doan U.M.W.
