Dewitt, N. Y. - The clock is ticking...again..for Shoppingtown Mall to pay their back taxes to the county.
A judge has ordered ShoppingTown Mall to pay nearly $10 million in back taxes by Friday, July 5. The ruling came after the mall missed a deadline last week.
The lawyer for the mall argued that there should only have to be a minimum payment because the County couldnt take over the Mall until October anyway. The lawyer said they plan to settle with Onondaga County and that their last offer, of $10,000 dollars is still pending.
The judge once again rejected that arugument and said they need to pay the 9.7 million by Friday.
