Push underway for state PILOT payments on abandoned properties in Ogdensburg


Ogdensburg city councilors want New York state to make payments on all of its abandoned or vacant properties to the city.

The state has a lot of abandoned property in Ogdensburg and City Councillor John Rishe wants the state to pay the city the equivalent of $8.2 million in tax exemptions.
