The Community Development Agency will pay $35,000 in back taxes, fees and penalties so that the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, at 117 N. Sycamore St., can stay in business. The nonprofit center houses an art gallery and administrative offices. Center officials had assumed in 1993 that they were exempt from paying property taxes, but in 1998, officials were informed that they would have been exempt only if the then-unfinished building had been occupied by the nonprofit group.

The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, an artists' cooperative founded in 1980, has hired its first full-time paid administrator. Anne Mattola, an artist facilitator with the Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego for the past three years, will do community outreach and development work for the center. Her salary will be paid in part by a $10,000 grant from the city of Santa Ana, awarded last year for the administration of a visual art education program in city schools.
