At the latest Metro Council meeting, Metro Mayor Bonnie Lewis informed the council that new homes had been left off the Moore County property tax rolls dating back to 2015. Though she did not give a number or estimated dollar amount, The Times has since learned that there were over 60 new homes with an estimated value of over $12 million missing from local tax rolls.
