Earlier this month the Plymouth Common Council approved a resolution granting Shiloh Milner a Commercial Revitalization Rebate Program Grant for 110 North Michigan Street, Black Cat Clothing Company. 

Milner told members of the City Council she is replacing the windows for the second-floor apartment in her building.  She presented two estimates, one for $20,000 and the second one for $9,400.  Milner told council members she selected the low bid and the council approved the Commercial Revitalization Rebate Grant at 30% reimbursement which would be $1,920. 

The City Council also approved resolutions for Zentis and West Rock delayed Tax Abatement Compliance Forms. 

City Attorney Sean Surrisi told members the resolutions waived non-compliance regarding the timely filing of CF-1 forms for the personal property tax abatements for WestRock and Zentis. 

Typically, the forms are sent in during March, April and May of each year to the city, but WestRock and Zentis turned in the forms to the county and neglected to send them to the city.  Surrisi said they need city approval prior to being sent to the county.

Surrisi said, “In order for them to claim the tax abatement that was on their schedule for this year the council would have to approve the resolution for each company.” 

The City Council questioned the procedures in place to remind the companies who have tax abatements of the required CF-1 forms that are due in each spring. 

The council unanimously approved the resolutions for Zentis and WestRock.
