According to the Era, (again, consider the source!) the Kiwanis Club currently owns Kiwanis Court.
Here is a quote from todays Era:
"According to Bradford City Mayor
Tom Riel, property taxes for McKean
County, the city and Bradford Area
School District combined amount to
Bauer said he believes HANDS,
although a non-profit that would have
the option to do otherwise, is looking

So if you read "amount to roughly $36,000" and "looking to keep Kiwanis Court on the tax roll" as written, it sure sounds to me like it is currently paying taxes.
And as I understand it, a non-profit has the option to not pay taxes.
I say the Kiwanis Club should do the right thing by Bradford, and sell it to Todd Hennard who will most certainly keep it on the tax roles!
A win-win-win for Bradford all around!
One, the Kiwanis Club gets to do the right thing for Bradford. Two, the ownership stays local. And three, the property pays all the taxes due!
BRADFORD NEEDS MORE TAX REVENUE, NOT LESS!
