Dino Fudoli’s tax defiance

Reporting, analysis and commentary
by Jim Heaney, editor of Investigative Post

Dino Fudoli contends the federal and state government effectively seized 12 acres he owns off Transit Road by declaring it wetlands in 2009. Not that he’s gone to court to press his case.

Rather, he’s simply stopped paying his property taxes. For the second time. His delinquency was the topic of my coverage three years ago, and again last week, as I reported the Lancaster town supervisor owes nearly $19,000 on two properties he owns in Cheektowaga.

Whether Fudoli pays a price politically will be determined Tuesday, when he stands for re-election.

Steve Brown and I discuss Fudoli’s transgressions on our weekly installment of “Outrages & Insights” that aired Sunday on WGRZ’s Daybreak.
