Looking forward to more such reports | Letter to the Editor

I was so pleased to see the new approach in the last Beachcomber: reporting on properties in tax arrears. Your article about the Sheffield Building, located prominently at the top of page three, was so detailed and revealing that I can now cross off my list searching out property tax information for at least one of the businesses on the Island.

I am looking forward to your weekly reports on other Island businesses facing similar circumstances. I am also hopeful that you will soon publish companion information: a list of all foreclosed properties and short sales, providing similar details on owners and amounts.

We, your readers, thank you for such thorough coverage to enhance the economic viability and visibility of our Island community.
