Director of Sunshine Inc. a no show at Warren meeting to answer questions about delinquency

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Warren City Council still has more questions than answers after the Director of a nonprofit, which owes more than $180,000 dollars in back taxes, failed to show up for a meeting Tuesday. 

Finance Chairman Al Novack called the meeting, requesting an update from  the Director of Sunshine Inc., Tony Iannucci. 

The nonprofit was originally created as a way of using tax payer dollars to rehab homes and help people with low incomes buy them.

Novak said he would like to see an audit to better explain why the organization was delinquent in paying property taxes. He would also like a confirmation from the director that residents currently living in the homes will not face foreclosure.

"He called me at 2 o'clock this afternoon, two hours before the meeting, and said, 'I am not coming to a meeting where I have to answer a bunch of questions to the public and residents,;" Novak said. "That's wrong because you have to be held accountable to what taken place."

Iannucci did not return a call from 21 News for comment.

Another meeting between Council and Iannucci is scheduled for Thursday.
