Both establishments owe city and county property taxes and have unpaid water bills. The public hearing will take place during the Royal Oak City Commission meeting starting at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.
In August, City Commissioners approved renewing the licenses pursuant to both businesses working out a payment plan with the Oakland County Treasurer’s Office and the payment in full of the water bills by Feb. 28, 2012.
But at the Feb. 28 meeting of the Hotel/Motel Committee, City Treasurer John Kravitz informed the committee that both establishments continued to have delinquent accounts and have made no arrangements for payments.
In a Feb. 17 memo to Commissioner David Poulten, Kravitz wrote that to comply with the City Commission agreement, the Madrid owed a payment of $143,394.99, and Travelodge/Sagamore owed $136,211.89.
