On Feb. 23, you published an article about the city of Oxnard's intention to file a tax lien on the Oxnard Town Center. I was terribly disappointed to see that your paper chose to include photographs of our property, 1000 Town Center. This is very misleading. Bedford Property Investors recently purchased the building, all cash, and has reserved funds up front for any new leasing or capital improvements. All property taxes and bond assessments associated with the building are current.

In-N-Out already had plans to move its corporate headquarters, now in Baldwin Park, to two floors of the 10-story building by November. The sale of the building is expected to be completed within 90 days. Buying the building "was really a function of the economic situation," said Steve Tanner, chief financial officer of In-N-Out.
