The St. Johnsbury (Vt.) Caledonian Record reports that an eight-percent penalty will now be applied to the Vermont ski resort’s outstanding tax bill.

Michael Goldberg, the court appointed receiver overseeing operations at both Burke Mountain and Jay Peak, has indicated that the tax bill will be paid in full once the proceeds of a $13.3 million settlement recently reached with creditor Citibank are received later this month.
