Hey, you know that big dairy operation up by Ramona whose management has a history of breaking environmental rules and dodging taxes? Lake County Dairy LLC, managed by Rick Millner?

Guess who's delinquent on Lake County property taxes:

The Lake County property tax database lists 416 of its 10,340 tax records as having "delinquent taxes on this parcel". As shown in the records above, the six parcels owned by Lake County Dairy, LLC, are listed twice as delinquent, since apparently no one in manager Rick Millner's office has bothered to pay any of the taxes due for 2011, the first half of which would have been due on April 30, 2012, and the second half of which would have been due on October 31, 2012. These six parcels include the old Swier apartment building at 150 East 4th Street on the south side of Ramona, which I find listed in various directories but not in the Secretary of State's corporate database as "Lake County Dairy Housing."

I checked with the Lake County Treasurer's office. The office assured me there is no clerical error here.

Once again, Rick Millner is not following the rules. He's already stiffed one local contractor for $23,000. Now he's cheating all Lake County taxpayers. Lake County, you were warned.
