According to city hall Korey's mother can defer property taxes as she is over 65, she is also eligable for a home owners grant. My concern was she has no ID but apparently she does not need it if she is the on the title as the property owner.
I have the paperwork that needs to be filled in and we will work on it immediately
here is what people are saying about this issue. Some of them weere his neighbors.
i heard the other day that Korey was trying to clean up his property by getting some soil and tgrying to level out the mess that the city left.
He was visited by BYLAWS who tried to get him in trouble again.
The police wont attend his home when someone drives a truck through his gate.
He wasnt hurting Korpan when Korpan freaked out One law for some and not others.
I am personally disgusted with the whole thing!
First may I say I am glad to read your posts chardonnay and the real help you gave with your understanding of some of the law aspects re, Mom getting free of the taxes for now!!

The plaintiffs unsightly overgrown weeds were obstructing much of the view in fact. I spoke to a neighbor who was upset by that bucket truck as bylaws was able to peer into her private backyard as well. This whole harrassment was completely unessasary! ...Unless you want a large prime chunk of riverside property. If only the three who caused this nonsense had been taught the value of respecting the laws of possession in kindergarten, or had half the good upbringing as korey has had this whole mess could have been avoided.

I think that it is safe to say that the controversial sticker/T-shirt, (if you know what I mean), has caused Mr. Korlek and his mother much grief!!
I agree and perhaps it isn't the correct thing to do, but I am also of the oppinion that free speach and thought are not punishable. I learned by a long hard road that it is best to at least dress non offensively and fight the bigger battles instead, but a rebel is a rebel always. It is also a shame for Angela Negrin and Tony Parkin as well, and I do believe Mr. Korpan over reacted miserably, in fact the lack of a sense of ho ho may be part of what cost him his top dog seat in local government!
I realize that this is a very late response to an earlier post, but yes, hoarding is a recognized mental disorder. Sometimes caused by an earlier mental trauma, sometimes caused because the person has a long-term perceived threat of harm or danger from outside their personal environment. In effect, sometimes the person doing the hoarding, without realizing it, identifies the items hoarded as part of their own personality or as a protection against the outisde world, in a mental, not physical, sense. So while what the city has done may or may not be legal (that remains to be settled) the property clean up has probably made the functioning of the disorder worse. That would give the person an extremely difficult to handle sense of being personally invaded. It is sometimes treatable with a combination of medications and long-term psychiatric treatment.

So if the mother gets her property taxes deferred, and then dies, whoever inherits her property would be expected to pay the accrued taxes and interest. Really, it's her estate that would have to pay up before anything could be done with the property, but I've said that believing that it might very well be only her son who would stand to inherit the property.
you guys are all great. Nostradama that is awesome information.
We are working to get help for Korey and his mom. Everyone one of you have hearts and I can hear it in your words.
These people are not on welfare and didnt want to be because they are proud. I want to see some sense of dignity restores to this family. I just love Korey . I cant imagine atough old bird like the councillor being afraid of him . She was egged on by her former boss. No matter if she really is a person of SOCIAL CONSCIENCE
she knew that Korey needed help not a horror story.
When Riverrat first posted this story I imaagined some fearful demon that was terrorizing the neighbothood.
I found a big TEDDY BEAR with a heart of gold.
Good Info Smokey
WHen you aint got nothin" you got nothin' to lose!
