Last week, the common Council approved relieving City Comptroller Kathy Sarver of the obligation to sell tax sale certificates at the annual tax sale for properties listed by Dec. 31, 2016. According to the Salamanca Press, the council agreed to moving all unredeemed certificates to tax pending status and directed the comptroller to send out all the proper notifications and required legal advertisements. Those that still have taxes to pay, it is encouraged you pay your taxes so you don’t lose your things.
