State: Kemah mayor owes taxpayers money


The state says Mayor Matt Wiggins has built piers and structures along the coast of Galveston Bay without the proper permits and without paying the state taxpayers.

The mayor owes more than $60,000. This comes just weeks after 13 Undercover told you the mayor was delinquent on taxes on dozens of properties, and some of his bed-and-breakfasts in Kemah were in violation of safety codes.

This latest trouble comes just two days before the mayor's election in Kemah -- one we'll be watching closely.
