The Resolution before you is to approve the transfer of Delinquent Water Utility, Board Up, Clean Up, Vacant Property Inspection and Housing Inspection Fees, and Fire Inspection Invoices to the July 2015 tax roll.

Pursuant to these Chapters, owners of affected properties will be notified by first class mail on May 5th, 2015, that the fees, plus a 10% penalty, will be placed on the July 2015 tax roll unless paid by June 4th, 2015.

The amount to be submitted for the July 2015 tax roll is $199,689.50 ($219,658.55) with the 10% penalty fee.

Passage of this Resolution will permit the inclusion of these fees on the July 2015 tax roll thereby allowing the City to recover the cost of providing these services. Passage of this Resolution is recommended.
