City Code Section

This Chapter establishes a process for collecting delinquent liens and foreclosing delinquent liens on properties.  The emphasis of the collection program will be to maintain good communication with property owners.  However, the City bears responsibility for recovering its costs associated with collecting delinquent liens. Incentives and penalties are established to encourage payment.  In addition, special payment plans are provided for persons having difficulties paying liens.  Foreclosure should be used as a last resort in most circumstances, to protect the interests of bondholders and taxpayers of the City, and to recover costs incurred by the City in providing services.
