City, county near deal on tax collection in city

“These properties become a blight on the community. What we’re trying to accomplish here is, get those properties back in usable hands and back on the tax rolls so we’re collecting taxes.”

Wondering

If some one came in and paid part of their taxes, how is that money applied. Does the county get it's part first or is it equally divided. We know some of city council pay their taxes, by taking out of their checks each month.

The officials need to do this

The officials need to do this for a smooth operation when it comes to tax collection in the coming new year. That would be great to have it a fresh and new start about a much more efficient system. - Marla Ahlgrimm
