More than 30 city properties that have had outstanding municipal taxes for the last two years will be up for sale this November.
In March of last year the city’s corporate services department issued 109 notifications to home or business owners that had more than a year of outstanding taxes. Since then that list has been whittled down to 35.
Pending approval from city council, those properties will go to auction on November 27. City property tax coordinator Kathy Stephenson says bidding always starts at whatever the market value of the home is so they are not under-selling the owners.
Homeowners still have up until the day of the sale to pay their over due taxes and remove their home from the auction block.
