The owner of the Berkshire Mall has two weeks to pay nearly $1 million in back taxes or the town will seize control of the county's largest shopping complex.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Michael Kohan, principal of Berkshire Mall Realty Holdings LLC, has vowed not to lose control of the 720,000-square-foot building on the 89-acre site.

Kohan has until 1 pm June 18th to pay in full the $422,000 in fiscal 2018 property taxes it owes to Lanesborough, and the $520,000 it owes to the Baker Hill Road District, according to legal notices.
