Joe and Lisa Zikuski served with a County Foreclosure today due to falling behind on $3,892.88 in back taxes

Recommended Posts

Joe Zikuski made $114,000 in 2018 and Lisa made $73,000.  Lisa has since retired from the city and is working for the state.  At close to $190,000 how can these scumbags not pay their taxes?  And this isn't the first time they have been in foreclosure, it seems to be a regular occurrence.

Every few years when Mayor Rich David makes Zikuski settle up his bar tab, at South City Publik House, the Zikuski's go into foreclosure. :lol:

Unless I’m missing something, it would appear that things are working as they should. Whereas,.....you don’t pay your property taxes, then foreclosure proceedings begin. 

Now if you want to talk about being more financially responsible, that’s pretty much an issue unto itself.

This is the guy Battisti has asked to be his Chief Investigator. What us regular folks need to realize Zikuski is the Chief of Police, rules and laws, integrity and morals don't apply to him. Why should he pay bills or taxes he never has.  Perhaps another bankruptcy is in the making.  County records show how many judgements he has had over the years.  Last but certainly not least , my friends in the JCPD say he often meets with a female at Calvary Cemetery and it is the wife of a one time friend of his who had a good job with the B-Mets.  Good choice for Battisti to have stand behind him at his announcement that he was seeking election.

I agree with Ted Williams. We all get in a bad spot from time to time, but if you have that kind of cash flow and are having trouble coming up with this little before it gets that far, something else is likely deeply wrong with your finances.

It's worth noting that this home is listed as having been sold to them for $38,000. It's not like they're drowning in the mortgage.

Between Debbie Preston's credit card, Paul Battisti's federal income taxes, and Chief Zikuski's property taxes, do we need some kind of remedial life skills personal finance class for local politicians?

It is amazing that a high ranking official, such as Zikuski is, can basically run up tabs and then just file bankruptcy and get out from under it. What is this, three times? I’m pretty sure we all know where this is going.

Add this upon the furniture he stole from a up scale furniture store were afraid to go after the Zikuski’s because he is the chief at Binghamton. The Zikuski’s purchased very expensive furniture from that store and never made payments. Par for the course.

Maybe what the government needs to do is start taking property from this welfare trash of a couple. They can start by seizing Lisa’s boobs and go from there.

Another funny part about this is the Battisti/Zikuski alliance. Is there any wonder now? Filth attracts to filth. Imagine those two running the da’s office? Yikes.

Why wouldn’t he be financially bankrupt? That matches his moral bankruptcy. Screwing fellow officer’s wife’s, screwing fire department and neighbors wife’s, not to mention being suspended from his job during a sexual harassment investigation.

It must be asked, how does this man have a job? As a tax payer in the city, I want mayor David to answer that question. Of course, to answer that, he needs to get off the bar stool next to Zikuski.

Well apparently I was missing something. A whole lot of something. 

Makes me wonder why I bother trying to play by the rules......when you’re almost left feeling like a chump of sorts for doing so. 

What a fucked up world we live in anymore. Seriously.

Because I will die with honor, having served my community and country, and having loved a wonderful woman and raised a couple of kind and responsible kids.

I frankly don't care much what the Republicans and Democrats throw at each other.  It's mostly bullshit, depending on where you look for noise...err...news...

We live by the rules that make sense, but live way outside the box.

Fuck 'em. Term limits and vote them all out. It has become a money game. People don't realize it yet, but our democracy is in peril, from both sides.

Trump and Sanders should have a wresting match in a bath of boiling oil, and see who wins. We the people would.  Radicals or imbeciles in power never work out well. 

Seriously.

Not to worry.  Zukuski's close friend John Sonny Manculich will cut him a check to pay his taxes.  Just like Sonny paid Paul Battisti's $86,000 tax liens.

Joe Zikuski is the reason I will not support Rich David when he runs for Broome County Executive.

That family is a disaster and it's shocking that they work in law enforcement at all. His late son burglarized a West Side home, which I wouldn't bring up given his passing except BPD blackmailed the victims to stop them from pressing charges. Here's Lisa's daughter's NYS inmate database entry for nearly murdering a man in a gang beating:

http://nysdoccslookup.doccs.ny.gov/GCA00P00/WIQ3/WINQ130 

...and here she is again, fleeing New York State Police last year until they had to deploy a spike strip: https://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/public-safety/2018/02/08/wrong-way-driver-drunk-interstate-81-troopers-say/319044002/

The people in that larger circle of local politicians are textbook examples of area misfits who can barely handle employment. They're stuck in local public service slurping up NYS tax dollars because they'd be laughed out of a job interview anywhere else.

Yet local voters fall for it, repeatedly.

That suggests to me that there may be more going on here than meets the eye - that this may be a financial ploy (legal or not) as opposed to an indication of fiscal stress.

As in, not "they can't pay the taxes" - perhaps more like "they know if they don't pay the taxes, they can go into mediation and pay less, and get their assessment dropped for future taxation purposes." Or more nefarious, like "they know that block will be torn down and that the city will buy them out before foreclosure occurs." I could go on all day with ideas, just pointing out that the information you provided may have changed this story dramatically.

The tax history on the property can be seen at Taxlookup.net.

http://taxlookup.net/record.aspx?jurisdiction=binghamtoncity&id=030200160.79-1-43&year=2019

Realtor.com also shows that it was listed in 2009 for $143k.

https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/16-Kendall-Ave_Binghamton_NY_13903_M35791-59954

I won't go into dishing on the prior owner, but I'm assuming it was no more complicated than getting a deal from a highly motivated acquaintance down the street who needed to get cash out of an unwanted property she'd been saddled with for years. Fair enough.

I just don't see how they'd let this happen in the first place. Their 2019 tax bill also shows they stopped paying the water/sewer.

When somebody's carrying debt voluntarily, you look at the expense and figure they must not have a better option. Something is weird there.

Joe got a good deal on 16 Kendall, according to the clerks site it was purchased back in 2016 for $0.00 from Barbara

If even half this shit is true, what a pathetic picture this paints. 

To have this sort of guy as chief of police?? I mean, he sounds morally bankrupt. 

How the fuck does somebody like this get into power??

Mayor David, you reading this??

Pressconnects?? WBNG??

Imagine him and Battisti in the da’s office? I hope they make super extra strong chastity belts for the women that work there. It would like being back to the roman empire days.

Seems pretty likely this quitclaim doesn't reflect the total situation. I'd noticed the taxes slipping on Taxlookup in 2015, and inferred Zikuski had opened the home equity line that year to buy it.

https://imo.co.broome.ny.us/propdetail.aspx?swis=030200&printkey=16007900010430000000

The $38,000 cited on Zillow and Trulia doesn't seem to currently be on the record they referenced. As you said, it shows $0 in 2016 and $25,000 in 1991, when the quitclaim says the prior owner had taken over the property in full. This says it was not considered an arm's length transaction, which would explain why it wasn't paid through through an investment property mortgage.

Her mortgage on this property was discharged in 1999-2000. The interior pictures at Realtor.com, presumably from the 2009 listing, show a perfectly habitable home with furniture in it, advertising updated plumbing and electrical.

Point is, it's not some abandoned, underwater dump that wannabe investors would pass off to each other for a dollar based on hopes and dreams.

Good info bing but for a Person let alone a person in power as a police chief to receive a home for zero dollars  becomes very questionable. I’m not sure what financial dealings Joe had with Barbara but these are the type of issues that get looked into from an ethics committee. And yes I hope Pressconnects and WBNG is looking at this not because that has anything to do with Paul but because of Joe and who he is
