July 2003 the WEHAV "appraisal-policy"
and notice of 17 July 2003 meeting at the Sheraden Seniors' Center.

Note that this "appraisal-policy" has changes from the Feb. 2002 Bill No.5 Public Notice documents, and if there were a Final Plan, these changes would not be permitted without "concurrence with the owners of at least 60% of the property owners within the NID" [Section 5 of the NID law.]
This "appraisal-policy" is illegitimate.
July 2003 WEHAV-tax "Invoice"owners began receiving the weekend of 12 July 2003
comparison of a City of Pittsburgh Tax Statement envelope - and the WEHAV-tax envelope

23 October 2003 ex tor tion 1. an obtaining of money, etc. by threats, force,fraud, or illegal use of authority. 2. money, promise, etc., obtained in this way.

Today a "past due" notice arrived to those who have refused to pay the WEHAV tax/"fee". It includes a bit of propaganda pitch for WEHAV & WEHAV-promoter Councilman Hertzberg's once-denied grandstanding frivolous lawsuit against the City in "defense" of the Zone 4 Station;
(take note that the Councilman is running for a County judgeship in next week's election.)
That lawsuit claims the City is not adhering to the very State NID law (Act 130-2000) which the City AND the Councilman have been ignoring all along in illegitimately establishing and starting up the District 2 NID and WEHAV.
