Nexus: Property Tax Exemption Denied!


Mille Lacs News Staff Writer


August 13. After reviewing Nexus documents, the Minnesota Department of Revenue has recommended that Nexus and Nexus Diversified Community Services do not qualify for property tax exemption in Mille Lacs County. If they build a new facility in Onamia, they will be taxable.


Nexus officials have stated that they will not remain in Minnesota if property tax exemption was denied.

Nexus CEO Resigns

Mille Lacs News Staff Writer


At the special meeting of the Onamia City Council this afternoon, Mayor Larry E. Milton announced that Nexus CEO James D'Angelo has resigned. According to Milton, the head of Nexus Inc. and Nexus Diversified Community Services will conclude his tenure with the company at the end of December of this year.


For the past several years, Jim D'Angelo was in charge of the Nexus corporation, which operates four juvenile treatment centers; Mille Lacs Academy in Onamia and the Gerard Academy in Austin, MN, as well as Indian Oaks Academy and Onarga Academy in Illinois. Recently he was working towards building a new facility on the Grosslein/Bye 38 acres in Bradbury Township, which was going to be annexed by the City of Onamia in order to move approximately 94 sex offenders from the Crosier Monastery where they are currently held.


As for the future of Nexus in the Onamia community, everything is still up in the air, Milton indicated. D'Angelo had stated that if Nexus did not receive property tax exemption, they would indeed leave the area. It appears that whatever the fate of Nexus, Mr. D'Angelo will soon no longer be in charge of it.

Purchase Agreement Extended

Mille Lacs News Staff Writer


A crowd of Bradbury Township residents gathered to hear Mayor Larry Milton announce at the special city council meeting that papers were in the process of being drawn to extend the purchase agreement on the Grosslein/Bye property until January 2, 2008. The current purchase agreement expires on September 15.


Citizens were disappointed with the announcement. After four months of fighting against having the sex offender facility placed in their residential neighborhood, people had hoped that, with the property tax exemption denial, the purchase agreement would be terminated, not extended.


Construction of the new Mille Lacs Academy was to begin in August, but due to the many pitfalls encountered, plans have been indefinitely postponed. Milton indicated on prior occasion that if things don't work out with Nexus, the purchase agreement will become null and void, the annexation will not proceed, and everything will revert back to the way it was.

Rumors about the For Sale sign in Mark Loch's yard turned out to be true. But will he give up his spot on the Onamia City Council and move to Milaca, as rumor also has it? Who will take his place as the Free Camping contact person??? Oh well. It looks like this is one Lab Rat whose trying to find his way out of the maze. I'd like to help him along.
