The Low Down received a January 2019 letter signed by then-NCC CEO Mark Kristmanson, who was replaced as CEO by Tobi Nussbaum about a month after sending that letter, addressed to Chelsea resident Brendan Denovan that states, “The NCC will respect the established process of the payment in lieu of taxes dispute advisory panel and will follow the conclusions that will ensue.”
