Title
Resolution Levying Certain Delinquent Municipal Solid Waste, Board Up, Clean Up, Vacant Property Inspection Fees, Housing Inspection Fees, False Alarm Fees, and Fire Inspection Fees as Special Assessments and Ordering Collection Thereof
Memorandum
The resolution before you levies certain Delinquent Municipal Solid Waste, Board Up, Clean Up, Vacant Property Inspection fees, Housing Inspection fees, False Alarm Fees, and Fire Inspection fees as special assessments as more particularly described in the attached Schedule A. This is a semi-annual process that provides a mechanism for the City to collect unpaid fees provided for in Chapters 26, 93, 101 and 105.

Chapter 13, Section 1:292 specifies the procedure for placement of these debts on the tax roll. Pursuant to this chapter, owners of affected properties will be notified by first class mail on May 6th, 2022, that the fees, plus a 10% penalty, will be placed on the July 2022 tax roll unless paid within 30 days.

The total amount to be submitted for the December 2021 tax roll is $ 109,311.81 (unless paid by June 6, 2022); $ 120,242.99 with the 10% penalty fee. These totals can be broken down into the following:

Description
Original Amount
Taxroll Amount
Housing
38,591.00
42,450.10
Police
24,532.74
26,986.01
Fire
34,526.18
37,978.80
Solid Waste
11,661.89
12,828.08

The Housing delinquencies are related to delinquent property inspection fees. False alarm response fees account for 96% of the Police delinquencies and 50% of Fire delinquencies. The remainder of Fire delinquencies relate to unpaid Fire inspection and special permit fees. Finally, Solid Waste delinquencies are related to unpaid Commercial Collection charges.

This resolution will permit the inclusion of these fees on the July 2022 tax roll thereby allowing the City to recover the cost of providing these services.
