Disappointed ESTHER and Sikh leaders after an attempt to meet with Menasha Mayor Don Merkes
September 17, 2013
The City of Menasha has assessed property taxes on the Fox Cities Sikh Temple on Midway Road. As a community of faith, the Temple is exempt from property taxes.
ESTHER and leaders of the Sikh community have been working quietly together for more than a year to persuade the City of Menasha that the taxes were imposed in error, and to have them rolled back. So far, the city has not found a way to rectify its error. Just today, the mayor refused to attend a meeting on the matter that had been confirmed as recently as last Friday.
Property taxes were levied on the Sikh Temple in error, and the City of Menasha is responsible for the error. The city can take action to fix it.
Please call Menasha Mayor Don Merkes's office right away (920-967-3600) to ask that this issue be resolved promptly and fairly.
