I-Team: Local official missed tax deadlines
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Newschannel 3 I-Team is investigating why a local elected official wasn't paying his taxes on time.
Earlier today, a local Township Supervisor paid thousands of dollars in property taxes after our I-Team investigation, which questioned why he's repeatedly missed tax deadlines over the last decade.
Pennfield Township Supervisor Robert Behnke publicly supported a property tax increase this year to fund public safety in his township.
But what many don't likely realize is that until Thursday, while the supervisor was out campaigning for higher taxes, he hadn't yet paid his own in 2012.
Newschannel 3 Chief Investigative Reporter David Bailey was tipped off to the story and joined us in the studio with more details.
