City Treasurer Spencer Coggs announced today that he will pursue an accelerated process to obtain eligible vacant tax delinquent properties in stable neighborhoods before they become eyesores.
“This will go a long way in preventing further deterioration of the housing stock in some of Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. If a property is vacant and eligible for tax foreclosure, under this proposal it will not be referred to the City’s collection law firm for collection, as is the normal second phase procedure. Instead, my office will pursue an in rem tax foreclosure to save the property from spiraling downward from deterioration,” said Treasurer Coggs.
Ordinance Could Be Used in Replacing Lead Water Laterals
City Treasurer Spencer Coggs has successfully sought a change to the Milwaukee Code of Ordinances that allows homeowners’ lead abatement costs to be treated as a special assessment instead of a special charge. The ordinance could eventually be used as an affordable way to replace lead water laterals. Under the new ordinance, Milwaukee property owners can pay the costs of lead abatement over a period of six years instead of one year, making the monthly installments due less expensive. “This is a win-win for everyone, both homeowners and the City,” said Coggs.
