Family Dollar pays landlord SIST's tax

Shawano Leader/August 2, 2006

Family Dollar has taken care of the property tax bill due on the building it leases from the Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology, allowing the store to go back to selling soda and opening its storefront amusement rides.

A check for $204,262.34 that city officials say bounced twice led to the pulling of beer and liquor, cigarette, soda, and amusement licenses at six properties owned by SIST and its subsidiaries.

The Family Dollar Store, 229 E. Green Bay St., which leases from Midwest Properties, lost its soda and amusement licenses when the city took its action on July 14.

City clerk Marlene Brath said Family Dollar came in on Tuesday to pay Midwest’s property tax on that building of $4,166.08, and interest on the delinquent tax of $291.63.

Another business that leases from Midwest Properties, El Mariachi Cantina and Grill, 635 S. Main St., and one that leases from SIST, the Hunan Chinese Restaurant, 145 S. Main St., paid property taxes on behalf of their landlords on July 14 and did not lose their licenses.

Property taxes remain delinquent for the Best Western Village Haus, 201 N. Airport Dr., which lost a Class ‘B’ beer and liquor license, and licenses for cigarettes, soda and amusements; The AmericInn, 1330 E. Green Bay St., which lost soda and amusement licenses; and three gas stations owned by Midwest Oil of Shawano, LLC —1381 E. Green Bay St., which had Class ‘A’ beer, cigarette and soda licenses; 1206 E. Green Bay St., cigarette and soda; and 716 S. Main St., Class ‘A’ beer, cigarette and soda.
