Retirement Inn paid off tax bill
La Conner Retirement Inn, perpetually behind on its property taxes for years, has paid every penny owed in back taxes and penalties.
In November, the back taxes, interest and penalties on the senior housing complex totaled more than $260,000. More than $125,000 of that amount comes back to La Conner for the schools, town and library.
